This book offers a global perspective on the role food has played in shaping human societies, through both individual and collective identities. It integrates ethnographic and archaeological case studies from the European and Near Eastern Neolithic, Han China, ancient Cahokia, Classic Maya, the Inka and many other periods and regions, to ask how the meal in particular has acted as a social agent in the formation of society, economy, culture and identity. Drawing on a range of social theorists, Hastorf provides a theoretical toolkit essential for any archaeologist interested in foodways. Studying the social life of food, this book engages with taste, practice, the meal and the body to discuss power, identity, gender and meaning that creates our world as it created past societies.

The chapters in this topically and methodologically diverse volume discuss the role food plays in the construction and maintenance of multiple levels of social identity; they also illustrate the myriad ways in which archaeologists may approach the issue. The book includes essays from archaeologists working in a wide range of time periods and areas: prehistorians and historical archaeologists, specialists in the Old World, and experts on the New World. Contributors use diverse data sets to discuss how food-procurement strategies, consumption patterns, and modes of cooking and dining are intertwined with the construction and maintenance of individual and group identities.

This book presents original and provocative views on the complex and dynamic social lives of Indigenous Australians from an historical perspective. Building on the foundational work of Harry Lourandos, the book critically examines and challenges traditional approaches which have presented Indigenous Australian pasts as static and tethered to ecological rationalism.The book reveals the ancient past of Aboriginal Australians to be one of long-term changes in social relationships and traditions, as well as the active management and manipulation of the environment. It encourages a deeper appreciation of the ways Aboriginal peoples have engaged with, and constructed their worlds. It solicits a deeper understanding of the contemporary political and social context of research and the insidious impacts of colonialist philosophies. In short, it concerns people: both past and present. Ultimately, The Social Archaeology of Australian Indigenous Societies looks beyond the stereotype of Aboriginal peoples as hunter-gatherers and charts new and challenging agendas for Australian Aboriginal archaeology.

Africa has a vibrant past. It emerges from this book as the proud possessor of a vast and highly complicated interweaving of peoples and cultures, practising an enormous diversity of economic and social strategies in an 2xtraordinary range of environmental situations. At long last the archaeology of Africa has revealed enough of Africa's unwritten past to confound preconceptions about this continent and to upset the picture inferred from historic written records. Without an understanding of its past complexities, it is impossible to grasp Africa's present, let alone its future.

The Social Archaeology Of Funerary Remains

Human bones form the most direct link to understanding how people lived in the past, who they were and where they came from. The interpretative value of human skeletal remains (within their burial context) in terms of past social identity and organisation is awesome, but was, for many years, underexploited by archaeologists. The nineteen papers in this edited volume are an attempt to redress this by marrying the cultural aspects of burial with the anthropology of the deceased.

Archaeology literally feeds on the residues and discarded remains of our ancestors' meals. Such material has spawned a vast field of research and scientific techniques looking at prehistoric diet and food so that we can now learn more about the residues found stuck to the bottom of a Bronze Age pot than what is at the bottom of our own freezers.

This is the third volume of a series from the Department of Archaeology at Nottingham University presenting work by postgraduates and early-career researchers from that university and elsewhere in the world. The essays reflect that while the importance of nutrition for survival has long been recognized, increasing emphasis is now being put on the cultural significance of the production, distribution and consumption of foodstuffs throughout all archaeological periods. Changes in archaeological methods are also demonstrated by the authors in their widespread reliance on zooarchaeological and archaeobotanical evidence There are twelve full-length papers and four shorter contributions discussing topics as varied as pyschoactive consumption in Cypriote Bronze Age mortuary ritual; elite ideology and feasting practices in Early Iron Age Greece; intoxicating drinks in ancient Indian art, literature and archaeology; sixteenth-century polemics about cold-drinking; the deceased as metaphorical food in Iron Age Veneto; food diversity in Mesolithic Scotland; a singular Late Bronze Age animal sacrifice event; ritualized feasting-goods from Norwegian graves dating from the first to the fifth centuries AD; animals in the household: not just a foodstuff; feasting and the state in Uruk Mesopotamia Prospect Books is an independent publisher specializing in books about food.

"This book deals with the problems that are encountered by archaeologists when reconstructing social history from domestic architecture. Often faced with little more than the remains of foundations or, at best, 'mute' houses, archaeologists have adopted social theories drawn from architects and sociologists. Such theories are here applied in a series of case studies which cover examples taken from ancient and modern housing. All the main schools of social theory are covered, including feminism, marxism, structuralism and structuration theory. The ideas developed by Henry Glassie, Bill Hillier and Julienne Hanson are also explored."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

This book is a compilation of the papers about Korean Neolithic written by Professor Nelson over the course of her career in East Asian archaeology. The first section deals with plant and animal domestication in Korea. The second part concerns ways to identify the functions of artifacts. The next papers discuss tribes, lineages, the division of labor, and gender. Comparisons of Korean Neolithic with sites elsewhere in Asia help to place Korean sites in their regional setting. The book ends with some thoughts about Korean archaeology in the past and the future of Korean
