Essay from the year 2019 in the subject Archaeology, grade: A, Kenyatta University, language: English, abstract: The author argues that Marxism still plays an important role in the interpretation of archaeological discoveries in the contemporary world. In support of this argument, the author examines the benefits and pitfalls of Marxist thinking in archaeological interpretations of past societies. Marxism archaeology influenced the development of new ideas which were consistent with social deconstruction and post-modernism. In this case, Marxists created a more inclusive archaeology leading to the rise in the number of indigenous archaeologists around the world leading to greater diversity in this field of study. Furthermore, Marxist archaeology provides a framework where individual interests of a particular social class can be discussed. For instance, Marxist archaeology is valuable in explaining how the top one percent in the society used religion to control the masses.
