Abstract: This chapter considers changing ideas about the relevance of the past and of archaeology to the public. It begins with a brief overview of the circumstances in which the discipline of archaeology emerged, from the early antiquarian interest of the 16th and 17th centuries, to its recognition as a full-fledged discipline by the 20th century. Throughout this period, changes in the wider historical context brought about changes in the way archaeology was practised, as well as changes in ideas about how the public should engage with archaeology. The area of theory and practice that we know today as public archaeology is largely the result of this evolution.
