The study of Archaeology in Latin America has been strongly affected by the socio-political setting of the region. The history of military repression in Latin America in the 1960s-1980s has been particularly challenging to study, with many holes in the historic accounts. Several Latin American dictatorships emerged during this period, particularly during the Cold War and the Cuban Revolution. Military regimes remained in power for decades, until internal and international changes allowed democracy to take over a firm hold. Due to military and governmental upheaval, written sources on clandestine repression are scarce and fragmentary, with many of these sources destroyed deliberately by repressive governments. New archaeological methods must be employed to reconstruct the true history of this period, helping shed light on repressive mechanisms, to recover missing history. Not only will the contributions of this important volume shed light on the specific case of Repression in Latin America, but the techniques described will be a valuable resources of information for archaeologists working to reconstruct other historical periods without reliable written sources, and shed light on the nature of political repression worldwide.

"Memories from Darkness, edited by Pedro Funari, Andres Zarankin, and Melisa Salerno shows us the kind of archaeology that really matters, in a particularly important way. It contains a real mixture of papers, covering different aspects of repression and dictatorship in a number of South Amiercan countries...There are theoretical papers, scientific pieces, material culture studies and first hand accounts on Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico, Bolivia, and Argentina, all adequately illustrated and, we must be thankful given the range of exciting South American scholarship presented here, with individual bibliographies for each paper. This book is about freedom of speech. None of the papers end with something as restrictive as a 'Conclusion'; rather those that choose end with 'Final Remarks'--a reminder of the importance of individuality and subjectivity when archaeology chooses to discuss matters of life and death.
Most of the book verges on shocking, but only in that minute scales to which the archaeologists here go in discussing the conditions and effects of repression are not commonly reported at the distance from which I write. Occasionally the contents of the book are downright hard...Memories from Darkness also has useful opinion pieces at its start (Laurent Oliver) and end (Martin Hall) that, rather than disrupting the distinctly South American collection of papers, serve to set them in useful wider contexts. Overall, this is an important publication. Its style feels quite 'raw', but this fits the subject matter and ethos of the book well. Required reading for contemporary and conflict archaeologists, it will also be of particular use to those among the wider world of post-medieval archaeology who are unsure as to the importance of studying the recent past and the present."
