Session Abstract

Space is a fundamental element of archaeological inquiries, since we investigate relations of space in order to reveal, among others, relations of time. However, the full potential of the concept of space has not been utilized thus far in archaeology. Space for the most part is simply used as a backdrop for human interaction and deemed as a neutral dimension, together with time, where things simply happen. The interactive dimensions of space and time in the production of a social environment have often been overlooked, whereas the interplay between different scales of space (and time) has rarely been considered at all. The session aims at establishing a theoretical framework for the study of archaeological space. A good starting point for this can be the abolition of the fallacy of the neutrality of space: human, i.e. lived space, is charged with emotions, ideas, prejudices, memory, experience and time. We propose to critically reexamine the idea and theory of space and assess the extent to which we can reconstitute the lived space of past societies. We welcome papers both on theoretical aspects of the study of space and case-studies which incorporate creative interpretations of space and time relations in prehistoric sites.

Archaeology in Situ

Από τις εκδόσεις Lexington Books κυκλοφόρησε στις Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες με επιμέλεια έκδοσης των Anna Stroulia και Susan Buck Sutton το βιβλίο Archaeology in Situ: Sites, Archaeology and Communities in Greece.

Αντιγράφουμε από το οπισθόφυλλο του βιβλίου.

«Archaeology in  Situ explores the ways local communities perceive, experience, and interact with archaeological sites in Greece, as well as with the archaeologists and goverment officials who construct and study such places.  In so doing, it reveals another side to sites that have been revered as the birthplace of Western civilization and the basis of the modern Greek nation. The conceptual terrain of those who live near such sites is much more complex and furrowed with ambivalence, confusion and resentment. For many local residents, these sites are gated enclaves, unexplained and off-limits, and tangibly expressing a division between past  and present that distorts our understanding of both».
