"This collection of essays is a timely, exciting and innovative contribution to the growing archaeological interest in network and relational approaches. The authors discuss the variety of ways in which the term entanglement can be used in archaeology and show that the term can be applied in a wide range of time periods and regions. Broad theoretical issues raised by a consideration of entanglement are discussed but the main focus is on applications to a diversity of topics and research problems. Notions of entanglement have the potential to bring together different perspectives in archaeology and this volume contributes in important ways to that initiative. "
