This chapter examines the multiple historical understandings and national communities that are enacted within the designs of archaeological museums and sites. And by focusing on museum designs and archaeological tours, the distinctions, tensions, and continuities between sacred and secular (colonial-)national-histories, between living and dead monuments are made apparent. It is important both to consider signs of struggle that disquiet the impression of a (more) singular and coherent project of settler nationhood and, at the same time, to trace historical legacies that endure in myriad ways.
