Abstract:This issue of 'Azania' considers the ethical practice of archaeologists beyond matters of heritage management and public engagement as it focuses attention on the positive and negative roles of archaeology in contemporary African societies and points towards a more dynamic, reflexive and thus responsible post-colonial mode of practice. Contributions: Introduction: de-centring ethical assumptions by re-centring ethical debate in African archaeology (John Giblin, Rachel King, Benjamin Smith); Ethics in African archaeology (Benjamin Smith); Toward a politicised interpretation ethic in African archaeology (John Daniel Giblin); Development-led archaeology and ethics in Lesotho (Rachel King, Charles Arthur); Knowledge about archaeological field schools in Africa: the Tanzanian experience (Asmeret G. Mehari, Peter R. Schmidt, Bertram B. Mapunda); Contract archaeology in South Africa: some ethical concerns (Ndukuyakhe Ndlovu); 'Where angels fear to tread': ethics, commercial archaeology, and extractive industries in southern Africa (Shadreck Chirikure); Commentary: on the debate on ethics in African archaeology (Alejandro Haber).
