Archaeology and Memory (Paperback)
About this item
This volume seeks to examine how the notion of memory can significantly structure the research efforts in the empirical field of archaeology. The archaeological approaches enable the diversity of mnemonic systems and their significance in past contexts to be explored and to examine what can be put under the heading 'past in the past'. The twelve substantial contributions by distinguished contributors cover a diverse set of regional case studies and focus on a range of prehistoric and classical case studies in the Eurasian regional contexts as well as on predicaments of memory in examples of the archaeologies of 'contemporary past'. Archaeology and Memory shows the importance of memory as a unifying term for thinking about past contexts and the way in which people thought about their own pasts, as well as wider theoretical reflections on materiality and archaeological methodologies.
