Item description for Local Identities: Landscape and Community in the Late Prehistoric Meuse-Demer-Scheldt region (Amsterdam University Press - Amsterdam Archaeological Studies) by Fokke Albert Gerritsen...
Gerritsen's study investigates how small groups of people---households, or local communities---constitute and represent their social identity by shaping the landscape around them. Examining things like house building and habitation, cremation and burial, and farming and ritual practice, Gerritsen develops a new theoretical and empirical perspective on the practices that create collective senses of identity and belonging. An explicitly diachronic approach reveals processes of cultural and social change that have previously gone unnoticed, providing a basis for a much more dynamic history of the late prehistoric inhabitants of this region.
