This forum aims to go beyond the usual art/archaeology discussions to explore the possibilities – and challenges - for work which might push beyond what is traditionally accepted as either art or archaeology. The articles comprise a diverse range of responses from academics and practitioners working creatively with heritage—in its broadest sense—from a range of disciplinary perspectives. This introduction sets these responses into context through the discussion of several interlinked themes - interdisciplinarity, practice, participation, and relevance - which surface throughout the forum.
