ACE 'Working in Archaeology' Photographic Exhibition 2011-12


Each one of Pierre Buch's 40 photographs is an independent work and can be considered in its own right. However, each picture is also accompanied by a keyword which helps categorise a facet of the archaeologist's work and to guide the visitor:

Excavating because the archaeologist is often digging amongst buried remains even if they also work on standing buildings and monuments.

Recording as the excavation destroys its subject of research, recording finds has to be precise and systematic.

Analysing because to answer a defined research question, archaeologists have to make the remains in the laboratory 'speak'.

Preserving because we have to conserve remains in order to study and present them now and to preserve them for the future.

Telling because the first aim of archaeology is to elaborate and disseminate knowledge about the past, even if it is constantly changing.
