9781842173633: Archaeology and Memory

This volume seeks to examine how the notion of memory can significantly structure the research efforts in the empirical field of archaeology. The archaeological approaches enable the diversity of mnemonic systems and their significance in past contexts to be explored and to examine what can be put under the heading 'past in the past'. The twelve substantial contributions by distinguished contributors cover a diverse set of regional case studies and focus on a range of prehistoric and classical case studies in the Eurasian regional contexts as well as on predicaments of memory in examples of the archaeologies of 'contemporary past'.
Archaeology and Memory shows the importance of memory as a unifying term for thinking about past contexts and the way in which people thought about their own pasts, as well as wider theoretical reflections on materiality and archaeological methodologies.

Book Description Oxbow Books, United Kingdom, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Memory can be both a horrifying trauma and an empowering resource. From the Ancient Greeks to Nietzsche and Derrida, the dilemma about the relationship between history and memory has filled many pages, with one important question singled out: is the writing of history to memory a remedy or a poison? Recently, a growing interest in and preoccupation with the issue of memory, remembering and forgetting has resulted in a proliferation of published works, in various disciplines, that have memory as their focus. This trend, to which the present volume contributes, has started to occupy the dominant discourses of disciplines such as sociology, philosophy, history, anthropology and archaeology, and has also disseminated into the wider public discourse of society and culture today. Such a condition may perhaps echo the phenomenon of a melancholic experience at the turn of the millennium. Archaeology and Memory seeks to examine the diversity of mnemonic systems and their significance in different past contexts as well as the epistemological and ontological importance of archaeological practice and narratives in constituting the human historical condition. The twelve substantial contributions in this volume cover a diverse set of regional examples and focus on a range of prehistoric and classical case studies in Eurasian regional contexts as well as on the predicaments of memory in examples of the archaeologies of contemporary past . From the Mesolithic and Neolithic burial chambers to the trenches of World War I and the role of materiality in international criminal courts, a number of contributors examine how people in the past have thought about their own pasts, while others reflect on our own present-day sensibilities in dealing with the material testimonies of recent history. Both kinds of papers offer wider theoretical reflections on materiality, archaeological methodologies and the ethical responsibilities of archaeological narration about the past.
