Addressing a long-neglected facet of the archaeology of our modern worldour institutionsthis volume reveals the interesting and insightful past of a class of sites that are deeply and inextricably tied to a core aspect of modernity.”Jamie C. Brandon, Arkansas Archeological Survey
"This volume highlights the use of interdisciplinary approaches and multiple lines of evidence as crucial to understanding the material culture of institutions and the relations of power that they embody. Institutions embody a worldview and the lives of their residents, staff, and community observers are influenced and constrained by the ideology which fashioned it. Researchers of any discipline who share an interest in power relations, childhood, gender studies, community relations, and institutional history will all find food for thought within The Archaeology of Institutional Life."--Journal of Middle Atlantic Archaeology
