This paper is an exploratory dig through some contemporary issues in archival science. Rather than seeing archival practice as the 'lone shag on the rock', this paper will look at ways in which archival thought can be placed at the centre of interdisciplinary thinking, and ways in which archival thought has drawn on other disciplines. This paper argues that by expanding our own archival minds, and embedding our expanding archival world view in places which matter, there is still hope for our own profession, and our planet's future.
