Archeological Papers of the American Anthropological Association: v. 20: Residential Burial Residential Burial

Paperback / softback
This volume represents a comprehensive archaeological discussion of residential burials in a variety of geographic, temporal, and social contexts. The volume chapters explore the many social meanings associated with the practice of burying the dead in residential contexts, touching on a variety of themes related to social memory, social reproduction, landscapes, identity, and power. Emphasis throughout these essays is on the important connections that people have with their deceased forbears and how these connections can be identified archaeologically.
