    The Australian archaeologist Tim Murray presents a collection of papers that trace the emergence of the history of archaeology as a mainstream discipline from the 1980s to the present. As well as the historiography and philosophy of archaeology, the 15 chapters discuss topics including Archbishop Ussher and archaeological time, the plausibility of archaeological knowledge claims, and pictures of prehistoric creatures commissioned by the 19th-century Darwinian Sir John Lubbock.
