The Petrie Museum and its social context It is acknowledged that museums are a significant and powerful vehicle for the public construction of the past and for public involvement in archaeology (Merriman 2004b, 85). Archaeology, however, is inescapably highly politicised. It is embroiled in social and cultural debates about the past and its meaning for the present, and has significance beyond the accumulation of abstract knowledge about the past (Smith 2004, 1). As cultural houses for archaeological objects, museums are ultimately about the development of cultural identities as well as notions of citizenship, and these are all inextricably bound with politics.
