Over the past three decades, “landscape” has become an umbrella term to describe many different strands of archaeology.

In this volume, for the first time, over 80 archaeologists from three continents attempt a comprehensive definition of the ideas and pr。

<P>As the foundations of the modern world were being laid at the beginning of the 19th century, Annapolis, Maryland, identified itself as the Ancient City.

An Archaeology of Land Ownership【電子書籍】

<P>Within archaeological studies, land tenure has been mainly studied from the viewpoint of ownership. A host of studies has argued about land ownership on the basis of the simple co-existence of artefacts on the landscape; other studies have tended to extrapolate land ownership from more indirect means. Particularly noteworthy is the tendency to portray land ownership as the driving force behind the emergence of social complexity, a primordial ingredient in the processes that led to the politi。

Conversations With Landscape moves beyond the conventional dualisms associated with landscape, exploring notions of landscape and its relation with humans through the metaphor of conversation.

With contributions drawn from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology, geography, archaeol。

Interpreting the LandscapeLandscape Archaeology and Local History【電子書籍】[ Michael Aston ]

Most places in Britain have had a local history written about them. Up until this century these histories have addressed more parochial issues, such as the life of the manor, rather than explaining the features and changes in the landscape in a factual manner. Much of what is visible today in Britain's landscape is the result of a chain of social and natural processes, and can be interpreted through fieldwork as well as from old maps and documents.<BR>Michael Aston uses a wide range of source m。

An Archaeology of Natural Places【電子書籍】[ Richard Bradley ]

This volume explores why natural places such as caves, mountains, springs and rivers assumed a sacred character in European prehistory, and how the evidence for this can be analysed in the field.

The discussion is illustrated through a wide range of European examples, and。

The Archaeology of Sutton Park【電子書籍】[ Michael Hodder ]
