Theoretical Approaches to the Archaeology of Ancient Greece: Manipulating Material Culture (Hardback)Lisa Nevett (author)
- Publisher out of stock
An introductory section exploring the emergence and growth of theoretical approaches is followed by examinations of the potential insights these approaches provide. The authors probe some of the meanings attached to ancient objects, townscapes, and cemeteries, for those who created, and used, or inhabited them.
The range of contexts stretches from the early Greek communities during the 8th and 7th centuries BCE, through Athens between the 8th and 5th centuries BCE, and on into present day Turkey and the Levant during the 3rd and 2nd centuries BCE. The authors examine a range of practices, from the creation of individual items such as ceramic vessels and figurines, through to the construction of civic buildings, monuments, and cemeteries. At the same time they interrogate a range of spheres, from craft production, through civic and religious practices, to funerary ritual.
