Macquarie University - North Ryde - Ancient History AHIS191: World Archaeology

Product Description

Bringing together a wealth of scholarship which provides a unique integrated approach to identity, The Archaeology of Identity presents an overview of the five key areas which have recently emerged in archaeological social theory:

* gender
* age
* ethnicity
* religion
* status.

This excellent book reviews the research history of each areas, the different ways in which each has been investigated, and offers new avenues for research and exploring the connections between them.

Emphasis is placed on exploring the ways in which material culture structures, and is structured by, these aspects of individual and communal identity, with a particular examination of social practice.

Useful for social scientists in sociology, anthropology and history, under- and postgraduates will find this an excellent addition to their course studies.
