Since its formation in 2003, the Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory (CHAT) Group has provided an important forum for the development of an emerging subfield concerned with the archaeology of the contemporary world, and this Handbook would have been inconceivable without the support and groundwork laid down by this group through the lively participation of its members in annual conferences and the email discussion list CONTEMP-HIST-ARCH@jiscmail.ac.uk. Similarly, this volume would not have been possible without the support and encouragement of contributors, editors at Oxford University Press, colleagues, friends, and family. The Oxford Handbooks in Archaeology series is an ambitious project that has enabled archaeologists to synthesize innovative and interdisciplinary scholarship that addresses current key concerns and questions, and this present volume joins an impressive community. We particularly wish to thank Hilary O’Shea, Taryn Das Neves, and Cathryn Steele at Oxford University Press for guiding and supporting this process. Specific thanks also go to the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, University of Bristol, Carolyn Graves-Brown, and J. and M. who have all supported the production of the Handbook in different ways. Finally, we dedicate this Handbook to the memory of Bill Rathje, whose pioneering work on the Tucson Garbage Project and innovative thinking in relation to the archaeology of the contemporary world continues to be a source of inspiration to us all.
