Summary An Archaeology of Resistance: Materiality and Time in an African Borderland studies the tactics of resistance deployed by a variety of Indigenous communities in the borderland between Sudan and Ethiopia. The main objective of the work is to understand the diverse forms of resistance that characterizes the borderland groups, with an emphasis on two essentially archaeological themes, materiality and time, by combining archaeological, political and social theory, ethnographic methods and historical data to examine different processes of resistance in the long term
