Abstract

This thesis uses ethnographic field research and literature analysis to examine the sometimes fraught interactions and relationships between the archaeologists and heritage managers who manage and interpret the material remains of Britain’s ancient past and contemporary Pagan groups to whom such remains are sacred. It provides a description of contestation of sites and human corporeal remains followed by a detailed analysis of the reasons presented in the discourse of contestation and the underlying attitudes behind the issues. The Thesis concludes with some thoughts on how heritage managers and archaeologists may better manage their interactions with the Pagan community in the future.
