Originally published in 1933, this book examines the material culture of various 'primitive' peoples, not only as evidence of migration but also as a window onto that culture's beliefs and customs. Sayce, using a variety of examples from all over the world, details the way in which objects can accrue different meanings through their lifetimes. This book will be of value to anthropologists, folklorists, and anyone with an interest in the evolution of material culture.
