Bonaventura, P and Jones, A.2011. Editors  Sculpture and Archaeology (Introduction). Ashgate Publishing Ltd, ISBN 9780754658313

This book looks at the relationship between Art and Archaeology. It discusses the subjects from a collaborative viewpoint as the book is the result of a conference where papers were presented by academics in both fields.  The book discusses the mutual benefits.  These include Artists finding inspiration in artefacts, archaeological sites and landscape.  This further promotes the debate of when is an artefact an artwork?   Artists also influence Archaeologists by ‘seeing things differently’ and thus lending the latter a different insight and possibly perspective, on their work, to give different readings to their research.   This book reflects the growing interest of Artists in Archaeology as both source material and as a way of interpreting and presenting their work.
