Arqueólogos a través del espejo

edited by Luis Alberto López Wario

In Through the Looking-Glass, Lewis Carroll recounts the new adventures of Alice, beyond Wonderland. When looking at her reflection on the mirror, Alice wonders what there is on the other side, and immediately realizes she can go across. In this volume, that image is taken as a metaphor and it is assumed that, when carrying out their work, archaeologists "face and cross to" the other side of the reality they try to explain, register, interpret, make known. During the development of their own particular perspectives, archaeologists stand in front of the "mirror", which allows them to lay out what they think their work and reality is, and therefore cannot avoid the perception of their own image in the reflection, besides peeking into their world and the worlds they try to analyze, without forgetting the relationships with contemporary society. In Spanish.
