History from Things by Steven D. Lubar
Book Description"History from Things" explores the many ways objects defined broadly to range from Chippendale tables and Italian Renaissance pottery to seventeenth-century parks and a New England cemetery can reconstruct and help reinterpret the past. Eighteen essays describe how to read artifacts, how to listen to landscapes and locations, and how to apply methods and theories to historical inquiry that have previously belonged solely to archaeologists, anthropologists, art historians, and conservation scientists. Spanning vast time periods, geographical locations, and academic disciplines, "History from Things" leaps the boundaries between fields that use material evidence to understand the past. The book expands and redirects the study of material culture an emerging field now building a common base of theory and a shared intellectual agenda."
