Book Description

30 Sep 2011 Debates in Archaeology
Fluid Pasts outlines an innovative archaeological approach to the study of rivers and flowing water, challenging the view that rivers are somehow more natural, less cultural than other kinds of material evidence. In bringing archaeological perspectives to flowing water, as opposed to static and solid objects, the book follows water from rivers along numerous channels to the many archaeological sites where running water was utilised or built into designs and layouts, or where other kinds of flow have left material traces. A focus on flow changes our perception of otherwise ordinary sites and landscapes, its very nature prompting us to think about the material world differently, and to develop more dynamic and fluid forms of analysis.

Product Description

Review

Beyond dams and diversions, the author extends the cultural dimension of watercourses to take in their more ethereal property of 'flow' ... a thought-provoking thesis on a very wide-ranging subject, which deserves much greater consideration. -- Stuart Nisbet, University of Glasgow .this is an ambitious book with a big argument.[.]Commendably, Edgeworth uses the theoretical literature and theoretical perspectives critically yet effectively, i.e., actor-network theory, symmetrical archaeology, phenomenology, etc., both to think through the case studies and to support his broader argument about the utility of the concept of flow. -- Cecelia Feldman Weiss, University of Massachusetts Amherst The New England Classical Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Go with the flow. 4 Nov 2011
By Mr B
Format:Paperback
The imagination of Dr Edgeworth takes us on a rollacoaster ride to some of the words greatest rivers, past and present and the personalities associated with them. Arguing that all sites should be viewed through the medium of flow rather than as static entities he encompasses not just the flow of water but that of deserts, animals and peoples too. Certainly worth a read for anyone interested in Anthropology / Archaeology basically he describes "The Big Picture" very succinctly.
