Miles C. Collier asks: should we really let go of the vast amounts of collective knowledge that resides in automobiles? If not, how can we hold on to it?


Archaeology isn't just about digging in grubby trenches. It is a way of thinking about the past and applying our imagination to the future. Miles C. Collier's remarkable analysis applies this thought process to cars.

Miles C. Collier brings an archaeological point of view to the pithy matter of deciding how we understand and treat our automobiles, and how we pass this knowledge to generations to come.

This book combines scholarship, pertinent anecdotes, style, and experience to provide a stimulating account of why we should all be archaeologists now.
