Archaeology is fascinating because it explores the foundations of human development. In fact it is the only social science that explores human behavior primarily through the material culture of social groups. Anthropological Archaeology introduces the reader to some of the problems that stimulate anthropological research in archaeology and to the concepts, language, and techniques used by archaeologists in conducting that research.

A Social Archaeology of Households in Neolithic Greece: An Anthropological Approach

A Social Archaeology of Households in Neolithic Greece: An Anthropological Approach (Cambridge Studies in Archaeology) by Stella G. Souvatzi
April 14, 2008 | ISBN: 0521836891 | Pages: 329 | PDF | 14 MB

The study of households and everyday life is increasingly recognized as fundamental in social archeological analysis. This volume is the first to address the household as a process and as a conceptual and analytical means through which we can interpret social organization from the bottom up. Using detailed case studies from Neolithic Greece, Stella Souvatzi examines how the household is defined socially, culturally, and historically; she discusses household and community, variability, production and reproduction, individual and collective agency, identity, change, complexity, and integration.

This six-part series presents the definitive history of archaeology, a 250-year worldwide odyssey that began with the unearthing of the ruins of Pompeii buried beneath the ash of Mt. Vesuvius. In a short time, archaeologists started pursuing very different objectives: some were treasure-seekers hoping to plunder antiquities of the ancient world; others sought to prove theories about the origins of civilization or the historical accuracy of Homer or the Bible; still others focused on humans themselves, trying to determine the age of the species. The series also looks at how archaeology has been misused as an instrument of foreign policy and where the study is going in the future with new technologies and methods.
