Time and Archaeology

Synopsis

The concept of time is salient to all human affairs and can be understood in a variety of different ways. This pioneering collection is the first comprehensive survey of time and archaeology. It includes chapters from a broad, international range of contributors, which combine theoretical and empirical material. They illustrate and explore the diversity of archaeological approaches to time.

Excerpt

A number of these chapters derive from the Time sessions of the 1994 World Archaeological Congress in Delhi. In the discussions following WAC 4 (and I here acknowledge the assistance of Professor Agrawal) a decision was made to include several chapters written specially for this volume (those of Fletcher, McGlade, Olivier and Rule).

I thank Professor Peter Ucko for his assistance in securing two of these additional chapters, and for his editorial input. I gratefully acknowledge the hospitality of Dr Mark Thompson and Dr Carolie Wilson (Australian High Commission, New Delhi), and La Trobe University for funding to attend the Delhi conference. Thanks are due also to Wei Ming, Department of Archaeology, La Trobe University, who brought all the artwork up to his usual high standard, and to my research assistant, Susan Bridekirk.
