Exploring Atlantic Transitions: Archaeologies of Transience and Permanence in New Found Lands

Edited by Peter Pope and Shannon Lewis-Simpson

Can we approach European expansion to the Americas and elsewhere without colonial triumphalism? A research strategy which automatically treats early establishments overseas as embryonic colonies produces predictable results: in retrospect, some were, some were not. Post-Medieval archaeology has much to contribute to our understanding of the gradual drift of ordinary people - the cast of thousands, anonymous or almost-forgotten behind the famous names of history.
