BARRETT The practice of archaeology demands our commitment to the view that certain objects are understood only by reference to the human past. These objects are regarded as a residue of the past. What we envisage the past to be, for there are potentially many pasts, is a matter of debate. Similarly debatable is the link between the surviving residue and the particular processes we choose to investigate, be they human actions or such long-term processes as social or economic change.

Participant observation can be considered as a technique for achieving the intersubjective understanding advocated by Schutz across cultural boundaries. The basic limitation of fieldwork is the extent to which the anthropologist can, in a matter of months, participate in a flow of significations in which the lived experience of indigenous people within their landscape extends, via contemporary racism, back to the violent disruption of colonialism and further into the past. The retrospective glance cast by indigenous peoples upon their own experience (including encounters with other anthropologists) draws upon events that occurred long before the arrival of the fieldworker.
