One World Archaeology

Series Editors: Joan Gero (jgero@american.edu), Mark Leone (mleone@anth.umd.edu), Robin Torrence (robint@austmus.gov.au)
Sponsored by the World Archaeological Congress

Beginning with volume 48, the One World Archaeology series has been published by Left Coast. These volumes contain selections of the papers presented at the WAC Congresses, held every four years.  

The subject matter of this series is wide-ranging, reflecting the diverse interests of WAC. WAC gives place to considerations of power and politics in framing archaeological questions and results. WAC also gives place and privilege to minorities who have often been silenced or regarded as beyond capable of making main line contributions to the field. All royalties from the series are used to help the wider work of WAC, including providing the means for less advantaged colleagues to attend WAC conferences, thereby enabling them to contribute to the development of the academic debate surrounding the study of the past.

The One World Archaeology series was launched after the first WAC congress in 1986 in Southampton, England. Books prior to Volume 48 were published by Routledge.
