Summary

"This collection is the first comprehensive survey of time and archaeology. It includes chapters from a broad, international range of contributors, combining theoretical and empirical material and illustrating and exploring the diversity of archaeological approaches to time. The contributors contrast a scientific understanding of time with social, cultural and religious ideas of time, and show how both are important to archaeology. While much archaeological research into time has focused on the key issue of attempting to understand how people in the past had different concepts of time, this collection also shows how developing a fundamental understanding of archaeological time is central to all archaeology, and impacts on its theory and practice."--BOOK JACKET.
