THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF PEOPLE AND TERRITORIALITY

THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF PEOPLE AND TERRITORIALITY

Szerkesztette: George Nash, Dragos Gheorghiu

Archaeolingua, 2009

 

What is place? What is territoriality? And, how and why do we interact with these spatial concepts? More importantly and pertinent to this volume, how do we as archaeologists and anthropologists identify these spatial concepts within our respective material culture records? It is becoming increasing clear that the intricacies of place, however subtle, are heavily influenced by the way people run their lives. Intricacies such as symmetry and linearity play an essential role in the concept and design of place. These components usually display traits of complex hierarchical societies. However, many complex societies are formed and governed by different mechanisms by such mechanisms as knowing, experiencing and controlling place.

The Archaeology of People and Territoriality, edited by George Nash and Dragos Gheorghiu, draws together a series of papers from around World, dealing with such issues as how ceramic and bone and antler designs moved across Late Mesolithic landscapes, the symmetry of field and irrigation systems and the concept of ritual landscape to Andean communities in Chile and socio-ritual behaviour within space occupying Australian rock-art.
This volume, published by the award-winning Archaeolingua Press comprises sixteen thought-provoking chapters and will have great appeal amongst archaeologists and anthropologists who have interest in the way humans interact with place.
