‘He Who Controls the Present Controls the Past’

George Orwell and Public Archaeology

The talk is free but registration is required

British Institute at Ankara, Tahran Caddesi 24, Kavaklıdere, 06700 Ankara (10 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH)

On 12 November, Tim Schadla-Hall, reader in public archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology UCL, will discuss public archaeology at the British Institute at Ankara.

Archaeologists present the past to wide audiences for a variety of reasons at different times, and they offer interpretations of the past that may well suit prevailing views, or indeed their own views of the past, but equally their interpretations may be adopted and adapted by others in a way that was never intended by them. This lecture is an attempt to examine the uses of the past by both individual archaeologists and wider society, in turn asking the question about both the appeal of archaeology and its potential abuse.
