AbstractThis chapter is divided into two parts. The first part deals with two theoretical concerns. My first concern has to do with how we know things as archaeologists working with the recent past. In particular, I am interested in the role of recognition and witnessing in the production of archaeological knowledge. My second concern has to do with time: I will explore, among other things, the particular politics of supermodern temporality, the temporal conundrum of the recent past, and the kind of time that emerges through an archaeological engagement with modern ruins. The second part puts to work the ideas developed in the previous sections through a case study — the vestiges of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939)
