An Ethnography of the Neolithic provides a provocative and novel reconstruction of society in Scandinavia over a period of 3,000 years. Christopher Tilley integrates a wide range of evidence, from prehistoric landscapes to the symbolic significance of axes and pots, to recreate in an accessible way the lives of the final hunter-gatherer-fishers and first farmers in Sweden and Denmark. His skillful fusion of archaeological evidence and new anthropological approaches makes this book an original contribution to a widely debated topic.

Book Description:

From prehistoric landscapes to the symbolic significance of axes and pots, this study integrates a wide range of evidence to recreate the lives of the final hunter-gatherer-fishers and first farmers in Sweden and Denmark over a period of 3,000 years.

Review:

"It remains the virtue of the book that it so consistently and successfully integrates the social and symbolic and demonstrates how social and cosmological changes are related, defining an increasingly competitive and complex order of social reproduction that integrates the past and the present through complex rituals and through a ritualization of landscape....The book is a must for archaeologists and a welcome inspiration for an anthropology of material culture." Kristian Kristiansen, American Anthropologist

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Archaeological research in Sweden and Denmark has uncovered a startling array of evidence over the last 150 years, but until now there has been no comprehensive synthesis and interpretation of the material. An Ethnography of the Neolithic bridges this gap, giving an accessible and up-to-date analysis of a wide range of evidence, from landscapes to monumental tombs to portable artifacts. Christopher Tilley also uses this material as a basis for a provocative and novel reconstruction of late Mesolithic and earlier Neolithic societies in southern Scandinavia, over a period of 3,000 years. His skilful integration of archaeological evidence with new anthropological approaches makes this book an original contribution to an important topic, whose significance stretches outside Scandinavia, and beyond the Neolithic.
