9781842173206: Time and Change: Archaeological and Anthropological Perspectives on the Long Term in Hunter-Gatherer Societies

This volume explores long-term behavioural patterns and processes of change in hunter-gatherer societies from the Lower Palaeolithic to the present. In doing so, this volume questions the disciplinary distinctions between fine and coarse-grain understandings of hunter-gatherer societies in anthropology and archaeology and challenges the perception that these distinctions are inherent to the two disciplines. The volume brings together studies that specifically address long-term behavioural patterns in hunter-gatherer societies past and present. Some of the contributors also combine historical/archival data and archaeological evidence with anthropological work on contemporary hunter-gatherers. All the papers are based on case-studies that, taken together, cover a wide geographical and chronological range. They represent current research dynamics in anthropology and archaeology across the globe (North and South America, Europe and Australia), and a variety of theoretical perspectives. The papers range chronologically from the Lower Palaeolithic to the present, and encompass groups at various levels of complexity of social organisation and degrees of sedentism, interaction with farmers and 'pristine-ness'.

About the Author:

edited by Dimitra Papagianni, Robert Layton and Herbert Maschner

Review:

...the volume presents an interesting range of perspectives on how to integrate observations made at different scales and drawn from a breadth of sources to make sense of the long-term trajectories of various hunter-gatherer societies across time and space [...] will serve as a good gateway to a growing theoretical and methodological arsenal that can profitably be used to make sense of the polymorphic record of foragers past and present.' (Julien Riel-Salvatore Paleoanthropology, 2010)
