Archaeology for Losers

 

Bone-formers / bone-losers: it would depend how much you want to live in a world like this. Calling the novices lunatics misses the fundamental point about an expansive time-frame for their existence and survival and evidence of having done so. To learn new things by looking at old things is a win win win. Neanderthals were humans, though not ‘new’. When a tangible link with the past reveals a long lineage of loss. That ‘history is written by the winners’ becomes the archaeology of lies: not that we should decolonise in times of trouble.
