Post-processual archaeology

Post: 1389/05/3 02:29  •   

Post-processual archaeology, which is sometimes alternately referred to as the interpretative archaeologies by its adherents,[1][2] is a movement in archaeological theory that emphasizes the subjectivity of archaeological interpretations. Despite having a vague series of similarities, post-processualism consists of "very diverse strands of thought coalesced into a loose cluster of traditions".[3] Within the post-processualist movement, a wide variety of theoretical viewpoints have been embraced, including structuralism and Neo-Marxism, as have a variety of different archaeological techniques, such as phenomenology.

The post-processual movement originated in the United Kingdom during the late 1970s and early 1980s, pioneered by archaeologists such as Ian Hodder, Daniel Miller, Christopher Tilley and Peter Ucko, who were influenced by French Marxist anthropology, postmodernism and similar trends in sociocultural anthropology. Parallel developments soon followed in the United States. Initially post-processualism was primarily a reaction to and critique of processual archaeology, a paradigm developed in the 1960s by 'New Archaeologists' such as Lewis Binford, and which had become dominant in Anglophone archaeology by the 1970s. Post-processualism was heavily critical of a key tenet of processualism, namely its assertion that archaeological interpretations could, if the scientific method was applied, come to completely objective conclusions. Post-processualists also criticized previous archaeological work for overemphasizing materialist interpretations of the past and being ethically and politically irresponsible.

In the United States, archaeologists widely see post-processualism as an accompaniment to the processual movement, while in the United Kingdom, they remain largely thought of as separate and opposing theoretical movements. In other parts of the world, post-processualism has made less of an impact on archaeological thought.[4]

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what
I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still
new to everything. Do you have any points for newbie blog writers?

I'd genuinely appreciate it.
1397/07/10 12:53
I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?
I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss
and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my audience would appreciate your work.
If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot
me an e-mail.

Hi! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know
how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks
weird when viewing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template
or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.

If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

I think what you wrote made a bunch of sense.

However, think on this, suppose you composed a catchier title?
I am not saying your information is not good, however
what if you added something to possibly grab people's attention? I mean Majid Salari Anthropology
- Post-processual archaeology is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo's home page
and see how they create post titles to get viewers interested.
You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say.

Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more
