Item Description...
"Archaeology and Text" challenges traditional assumptions about the relationship between history and archaeology by re-evaluating the role of artefacts and documents in the reconstruction of the historical past. Previous attempts to create a rapprochement between the disciplines have been undermined by a failure to see artefacts and documents as anything more than simple sources of information about the past. The central argument of this concise and original book is that both must be seen in terms of their efficacy in the past, in particular as technologies of power and resistance. Drawing upon recent work in theoretical archaeology, John Moreland puts forward a series of case studies from early medieval Europe, early modern North America, and the prehistoric Near East to illustrate the ways in which both documents and artefacts were 'activated' in the reproduction and transformation of power and identity. The concluding chapter warns that any contribution these arguments may make to the better understanding of the historical past will be negated if we fail to appreciate the very real dangers posed, to all the peoples of the past, by the recent 'linguistic turn' in both disciplines.

Informatively challenges traditional assumptions  Feb 11, 2002
In Archaeology And Text, John Moreland informatively challenges traditional assumptions commonly held regarding the relationship between archaeology and history by re-evaluating the role of artifacts and documents in the reconstruction of the historical past. His central argument is that both documents and artifacts must be seen in terms of their efficacy in the past, and in particular, as technologies of power and resistance. This original, innovative, and iconoclastic work is based on recent and on-going research in theoretical archaeology, using a series of case studies ranging from early medieval Europe, early modern North America, and prehistoric Near East to illustrate the ways in which both documents and artifacts were "activated" in the reproduction and transformation of power and identity. Archaeology And Text is a welcome and challenging addition to the growing body of archaeological literature.
