"A masterful overview of archaeological work on American gravestones and cemeteries that should be on the shelf of every student and scholar of mortuary studies."--Lynn Rainville, author of "Hidden History: African-American Cemeteries in Virginia" "A landmark publication that synthesizes for the first time the massive amount of research on historic mortuary archaeology, especially monuments, across America. An essential text for many archaeologists, art historians, and cultural anthropolgists."--Harold Mytum, coeditor of "Prisoners of War: Archaeology, Memory, and Heritage of 19th- and 20th-Century Mass Internment" Gravestones, cemeteries, and memorial markers offer fixed points in time to examine Americans' changing attitudes toward death and dying. In tracing the evolution of commemorative practices from the seventeenth century to the present, Sherene Baugher and Richard Veit offer insights into our transformation from a preindustrial and agricultural to an industrial, capitalist country. Paying particular attention to populations often overlooked in the historical record--African Americans, Native Americans, and immigrant groups--the authors also address the legal, logistical, and ethical issues that confront field researchers who conduct cemetery excavations. Baugher and Veit reveal how gender, race, ethnicity, and class have shaped the cultural landscapes of burial grounds and summarize knowledge gleaned from the archaeological study of human remains and the material goods interred with the deceased. From the practices of historic period Native American groups to elite mausoleums, and from almshouse mass graves to the rise in popularity of green burials today, "The Archaeology of Cemeteries and Gravemarkers" provides an overview of the many facets of this fascinating topic. Sherene Baugher, professor of archaeology at Cornell University, is the coeditor of "Archaeology and Preservation of Gendered Landscapes." Richard F. Veit is professor of anthropology at Monmouth University and the coauthor of "New Jersey Cemeteries and Tombstones: History in the Landscape."

Critical interdisciplinary examination of archaeology’s approach to childhood in prehistory. Children existed in ancient times as active participants in the societies in which they lived and the cultures they belonged to. Despite their various roles, and in spite of the demographic composition of ancient societies where children comprised a large percentage of the population, children are almost completely missing in many current archaeological discourses. To remedy this, The Archaeology of Childhood aims to instigate interdisciplinary dialogues between archaeologists and other disciplines on the notion of childhood and children and to develop theoretical and methodological approaches to analyze the archaeological record in order to explore and understand children and their role in the formation of past cultures. Contributors consider how the notion of childhood can be expressed in artifacts and material records and examine how childhood is described in literary and historical sources of people from different regions and cultures. While we may never be able to reconstruct every last aspect of what childhood was like in the past, this volume argues that we can certainly bring children back into archaeological thinking and research, and correct many erroneous and gender-biased interpretations.

The mythic American West, with its perilous frontiers, big skies, and vast resources, is frequently perceived as unchanging and timeless. The work of many western-based historical archaeologists over the past decade, however, has revealed narratives that often sharply challenge that timelessness. Historical Archaeology Through a Western Lens reveals an archaeological past that is distinct to the region--but not in ways that popular imagination might suggest. Instead, this volume highlights a western past characterized by rapid and ever-changing interactions between diverse groups of people across a wide range of environmental and economic situations. The dynamic and unpredictable lives of western communities have prompted a constant challenging and reimagining of both individual identities and collective understandings of their position within a broader national experience. Indeed, the archaeological West is one clearly characterized by mobility rather than stasis. The archaeologies presented in this volume explore the impact of that pervasive human mobility on the West--a world of transience, impermanence, seasonal migration, and accelerated trade and technology at scales ranging from the local to the global. By documenting the challenges of both local community-building and global networking, they provide an archaeology of the West that is ultimately from the West.

Cemeteries house the dead, but gravemarkers are fashioned by the living, who record on them not only their pleasures, sorrows, and hopes for an afterlife, but also more than they realize of their history, ethnicity, and culture. Richard Meyer has gathered twelve original essays examining burial grounds through the centuries and across the land to give a broad understanding of the history and cultural values of communities, regions, and American society at large.

[The book] consists of a number of articles specifically selected to present an overview of the field of archaeology as it is practiced today. Each article was chosen to make the old bones, shards of pottery, and stone tools pop into the living cultural context in which they once existed.... The book may serve as a supplement to a standard textbook used in introductory archaeology classes. Or it might be used with other books to replace the standard textbook altogether. This anthology would be useful in general courses in anthropology and to an interested lay public. -To the reader.

Nur ein Jahr nach der legendären Entdeckung von Troja durch Heinrich Schliemann reiste dieser im Jahr 1874 nach Mykene, um weiter nach Spuren von Homers Ilias zu forschen, insbesondere nach dem Grab Agamemnons. Zunächst ließ er sechs Tage lang zwölf Arbeitern auf der Akropolis 34 gut fünf Meter tiefe Suchgräben ziehen, bis die illegale Grabung durch die Behörden beendet wurde. Im Sommer 1876 lag endlich die Grabungsgenehmigung vor, und sofort begann Schliemann die Grabungen in Mykene. Er suchte – im Gegensatz zu anderen – die Grablege Agamemnons (des sagenhaften Königs und Oberbefehlshabers der griechischen Streitmacht vor Troja) nicht außerhalb, sondern innerhalb der Burgmauern. Der größte Fund war die sogenannte Goldmaske des Agamemnon aus Mykene, die nach heutigen Erkenntnissen allerdings nicht Agamemnon zugesprochen werden kann, da sie aus einer um etwa 300 Jahre früheren Ära stammt. In diesem Buch beschrieb Heinrich Schliemann detailliert seine Entdeckungen und versuchte, diese mit den Beschreibungen der antiken Autoren wie Homer in Übereinstimmung zu bringen. Das Buch wurde mit über 250 Abbildungen der gefundenen Artefakte, zahlreichen Plänen und Bildtafeln versehen, die vollständig in diesem E-Book enthalten sind. Der Text des hier erstmals als E-Book herausgegebenen Grabungsberichtes wurde leicht modernisiert und in die aktuelle Rechtschreibung übertragen.
