This essay will examine the cross-overs that can increasingly be seen between archaeological research and practice, and contemporary art: artistic installation and intervention becomes archaeological, if anything other than the most literal and conservative of definitions is used; archaeological practice is performance, and like much art, the process matters more than the result - the journey more than the destination; and finally art can be used to interpret historic places and events, in some cases more effectively than conventional heritage facilities, and archaeological evidence. Here I will use a range of examples to examine how artists are archaeologists, and vice versa.
