  Title Between artifacts and texts : historical archaeology in global perspective Type Book Whole
  Year 1997 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Archaeology and history.  
  Abstract Between Artifacts and Texts focuses on these key questions in its analysis of the crucial relationship between material culture and writing. Anders Andren analyzes this relationship in examples from 12 major disciplines in historical archaeology, summarizing their role in five global methodological approaches. In the process, he underscores the fundamental importance of all historical archaeologies. The book is the first truly global survey of the relationship between artifacts and texts from historiographical, methodological, and analytical perspectives. By deliberately crossing the boundaries of the 12 single disciplines, Andren offers new insights on common issues in archaeology. This original, in-depth investigation is valuable reading for advanced undergraduates, graduate and postgraduate students, and instructors in any historical archaeological subject, as well as in prehistoric archaeology, anthropology, and history.
