Drawing on social theory and offering numerous case studies, Archaeologies of Materiality is one of the first books to explore materiality across time and space.

  • Demonstrates the saliency of materiality by linking it to concepts of landscape, technology, embodiment, ritual, and heritage.
  • Offers archaeological case studies ranging from prehistoric to contemporary contexts, from Neo-Assyria, South Africa, Argentina, Panama, and the United States.
  • Explores the idea of a material universe that is socially conceived and constructed, but that also shapes human experience in daily practice.
