Book Description

27 Nov 2009 Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe
Building upon Heinrich Härkes influential research on burial archaeology and early medieval migrations, and in particular, his ground-breaking work on the relationship between the theory and practice of burial archaeology, this book sets a new agenda for mortuary archaeology. Using archaeological data, the essays explore how mortuary practices have served in the make-up and expression of medieval social identities.Applying explicit theoretical perspectives to case studies based on a range of European sites (from Scandinavia to Britain, Southern France to the Black Sea), Mortuary Practices and Social Identities in the Middle Ages fulfils the need for a volume that provides accessible material to students, engages with current debates in mortuary archaeologys methods and theories and explores the interpretation of medieval identities through burial data.

Good quality research, presented in an accessible way. Gives a lot of insight into particular theoretical developments and the influence that Härke's work has had on this field. Mainly early medieval, but valuable for anyone with an interest in mortuary archaeology.
