Description

In this stimulating account of his life's experiences, renowned scholar and pioneer Africanist archaeologist Merrick Posnansky takes his readers on an unusual journey across the world, from his origins in a small Jewish community in Manchester to his adventures on archaeological sites in the villages of Africa before finally settling down to teach in Los Angeles.A Jewish British expatriate in an African social world, Posnansky struggled to establish his racial identity in the British colonial world where Jewish communities were rare. He crossed racial and religious boundaries by marrying a Christian woman from Uganda, a highly unusual step at that time.Written in a refreshing, candid style, these memoirs provide a fascinating glimpse into the changes taking place in modern Africa. "Africa and Archaeology" is a first hand account of the racial and religious prejudices of the twentieth century.
