Ethnography of the Neolithic by Christopher Tilley

Book Description

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.

Books By Author Christopher Tilley

Ideology, Power and Prehistory by Christopher Tilley Ideology, Power and Prehistory, Paperback (November 2008)

This book starts from the premise that methodology has always dominated archaeology to the detriment of broader social theory.

Materiality of Stone by Christopher Tilley Materiality of Stone, Hardback (July 2004)

From the silky wax qualities of the surfaces of some quartz menhirs to the wood-grain textures of others, to the golden honeycombed limestones of Malta, to the icy frozen waves of the Cambrian sandstone of south-east Sweden, this book investigates the sensuous material qualities of stone.

Metaphor and Material Culture by Christopher Tilley Metaphor and Material Culture, Hardback (January 1999)

Combines theoretical interpretation with practical examples to show the significance of the concept of metaphor in the study and writing of material forms. This book presents three archaeological and ethnographic studies of metaphors chosen to demonstrate the richness of the concept for understanding texts, objects and artworks.
