  • A Forest Filled with Memories: The Role of Public Archaeology in the
           Revitalisation of Lumber Camp Heritage in Témiscouata, Québec (Canada)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract During the first half of the 20th century, the lumber industry played an instrumental role in the economic development of the Témiscouata valley in eastern Québec, Canada. Considering the strong working-class lumber heritage in Témiscouata, a public archaeology approach was used as a tool to engage community in the documentation of their own history. Based on the results of a public archaeology programme led at a 1940s lumber camp site, this study explores how the archaeological experience acts as a “memory trigger” leading individuals to share personal stories and local knowledge. Ultimately, this research illustrates the importance of public archaeology for accessing and shaping collective memory.

  • Hidden Histories of Captive and Enslaved Maya Women in the Indigenous
           Americas

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Few archaeological studies of Pre-Columbian Maya peoples mention enslaved individuals. While ethnohistoric texts attest to the likelihood of Indigenous Maya enslavement practices before the arrival of Spanish conquistadores and friars, archaeologists are reluctant to consider such practices and peoples into interpretative frameworks because of their tremendous ambiguity in the archaeological record. This paper embraces and probes the ambiguity of the archaeological record to interrogate the possibility of hidden histories of captive and enslaved Maya individuals in general and captive and enslaved Maya women in particular during the Classic and Postclassic periods. It argues that such women cannot be found in particular types of artifacts or hieroglyphic texts but at the intersection of names and landscapes.

  • Mobilizing Workforce for Building Megaliths in Northeast India:
           Ethnoarchaeological Insights from Willong Khullen Village in Manipur

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract While ethnoarchaeological studies on megalith-building traditions in a few communities in India’s northeastern region have enriched our knowledge, a knowledge gap remains regarding how traditional societies mobilized the workforce for transporting and erecting stone monuments. This paper aims to fill this research gap with an ethnographically documented case of building a monolith in 2020 in Willong Khullen, a village inhabited by the Maram Nagas (an indigenous Tibeto-Burman ethnic community) in the Indian state of Manipur. After participating in the undertaking, I argue that traditional networks of support among sub-clans and clans in the village, as well as among neighboring and distant villages, may have ensured the free mobilization of workforce. The survey also revealed that work feasts and a grand feast, where the host expends maximum resources, are crucial for accessing social support networks, including the mobilization of labor participants. These feasts serve as a means of reciprocating the labor participants for their voluntary labor and time. The survey results support the claim of the high cost of such undertakings and supplement that feasts may have served similar functions in the past among other Naga communities in the region.

  • Recovering the Memories of the Capdella Cardboard Hospital Through
           Community Archaeology

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study reveals the early results of diverse community archaeology activities taking place in a contemporary archaeological site, a cardboard hospital built in 1912 in the Vall Fosca (Catalan Pyrenees). This isolated valley, formerly used to breed cattle, had three hydroelectric power facilities erected in the twentieth century. In 2019, the Torre Capdella Town Council and the National Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia initiated a project involving local communities. The main scope of this work is to comprehend the materiality of the working class and to provide new narratives about the people who built them and subsequently occupied part of the valley.

  • Heritage in and of the Housing Crisis: the Case of the Aylesbury Estate

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The UK’s housing crisis is at breaking point, caused primarily by deregulation, the diminished provision of public housing and the marketing of housing as property assets rather than homes. Yet the role of the heritage industry within these processes has been insufficiently analysed. This paper outlines multiple intersections between heritage and the housing crisis by examining the regeneration of one of London’s post-World War II public housing estates, the Aylesbury. It will illustrate how heritage methods and discourse have been instrumentalised by property developers and estate residents and discuss the implications this has for the heritage sector.

           in relation to Andean Stone

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract My paper addresses perspectives on powerful stones among rural farmers and pastoralists in the contemporary Andes. Stones are considered sites of transformation that transcend temporal dimensions. Some boulders are considered to have been people in previous ages; their petrification is an ongoing process that affects human beings in their vicinity, suggesting an ontological orientation in which time, place, materiality, and consciousness are intimately interrelated. Significant stones, ranging from miniature livestock to huge monoliths, are connected with powerful mountains through a play of fractal relations that animates the cosmos.

  • Living a Path of Mutual Respect: Technological Stone Ontologies in the
           Horn of Africa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Boreda Indigenous knowledge prescribed that humans respect all entities with whom they co-inhabit, including stone. Humans, stone, and water’s reciprocal relationships prompted their participation in each other becoming fetuses, infants, children, youth, married adults, mature adults, elders, and ancestors. Life was a co-production between humans and non-humans, such that stone and water could inflict harm or bring well-being to humans. Non-human beings, such as flaked stone tools, were evidence of engaging in correct interaction ‘practice’ (time, place, and actor) with other beings—a process of mutual respect and responsibility and one in which there was no end or final “product.”

  • Reviving the Urban Heritage of the Algerian Sahara: Restoration and
           Sustainability of Earthen Architecture in Ksar Khanguet Sidi Nadji as a
           Case Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Earthen architecture, an enduring legacy of human ingenuity, has historically served as a source of durable and sustainable shelter across civilizations. Despite this significance, several of the world’s earthen architectural sites are now facing abandonment and obsolescence, as is the case of Ksar Khanguet Sidi Nadji in the Algerian Sahara. To address this critical situation, we propose a sustainable, eco-friendly, and cost-effective solution for the restoration of the urban fabric of the Ksar that takes into account the needs of its residents and its heritage value. Our approach utilizes the anastylosis method which implies that we reuse original on-site components as building materials whenever possible. We introduce new materials only when necessary, after subjecting them to rigorous testing and control. Additionally, we take into account the complex challenges of human, natural, and technical factors involved in the restoration process, offering a practical solution to restore and preserve the earthen heritage of the Ksar while benefiting its residents.

  • To Computational Archaeology and Back: The Round-Trip Journey of Stone
           Artifacts Between a Physical and a Digital Existence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The fields of Design and Archaeology keenly understand culture as viewed through a material and technological prism. At a time when data are viewed as a ‘new material’, one that can be stored, compressed, collected, and mined, digital tools are snapshots of our technological capabilities and cultural interests. The making of design for debate objects is a practice employed to raise questions and test the boundaries of what is expected of the material world around us. This article details a series of design works of knapped flint hand-axes that were 3D-scanned, processed, and worked in their malleable digital material state and reborn into the physical world using various contemporary fabrication technologies and materials. The pairing of a 3D-printed nylon object with its lithic-technology previous self allows for a glimpse at the journey traveled, both materially and technologically, and in terms of time and our species' evolution.

      Abstract: Abstract What is knowable about stone tool users’ knowledge' The people of the New Guinea Highlands were among the last to use stone implements routinely in their daily lives. These comprised both lithic flake tools and polished stone axes. Their classification of these objects challenges our notion of taxonomic knowledge, which involves agreement over defined classes, whereas they evidence considerable disagreement with unclear categories. It is necessary to situate stone within the egalitarian acephalous cultures where reciprocity features centrally to appreciate the ontological status of stone.

  • Animate Stone: Maya Chert ‘Debitage’ and Ontological
           Perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Ethnographic and ethnohistoric research concerning Maya conceptions of stone illustrate that the Maya consider stone animate. In archaeology, discussions of animate stone focus on ritual contexts. ‘Utilitarian’ objects, like debitage, are recognized as symbolic when deposited in ritual spaces but not in quotidian ones. However, the animate nature of stone suggests that its significance should be discussed in quotidian contexts. We compare chert debitage from ritual and production areas in the Maya lowlands utilizing ethnographic, ethnohistoric, and epigraphic information about the agency of stone, specifically chert. These discussions highlight the integration of Indigenous perceptions of non-human objects in archaeology interpretation.

  • Set in Stone: Human–Horse Relations as Embodied in Shaped Stone
           Balls

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The enigmatic presence of uniquely shaped, spherical stones attracted the attention of archaeologists at Oldowan sites in Africa as early as a century ago. Shaped stone balls (SSBs) are among the oldest implements used by humans. For nearly 2 million years, they accompanied ancient humans as a stable cultural anchor throughout the Lower Paleolithic period and beyond. These tools reflect techno-cultural processes and Lower Paleolithic human perceptions of their relationships with the non-human animal world. Nonetheless, the few techno-functional studies focussing on these items have only scraped the surface of their research potential. In this paper, I will explore evidence suggesting that SSBs embody the relations of ancient humans with a particular animal—the horse—and propose that they might have played an active role in the social and cosmological realms of Lower Paleolithic (LP) ontology. Several previous studies indicate that they were shaped through a meticulous process. Traces of use and organic residues of marrow/fat associate them with bone-breaking activities. Furthermore, a comprehensive contextual analysis points to a correlation, observed at various sites, between SSBs and large herbivores, specifically horses. This correlation supports the premise that early humans relied on SSBs to extract calories from horses and points to a possible link between the simultaneous disappearance of large horses and SSBs from the Levantine landscape at the end of the LP. The role of horses in Paleolithic diet and culture is well reflected in the archaeological record. Following recent anthropological views, I advocate that SSBs played an important role in the human–horse alignment, embodying within them the world of perceptions and relationships of ancient humans with this non-human animal who shared their habitat.

  • Bored Stones–Star Stones–Ancestral Stones: A Sub-Saharan Perspective
           of the Ritualised Relationship Between Humans and Perforated Stones

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Bored stones are prolific in South Africa and found across much of sub-Saharan Africa. Most are surface finds, but some have been excavated from Pleistocene Stone Age deposits dating to between about 11,000 to 45,000 years ago. Others are found in association with late Holocene Iron Age farmer occupations, and in some places, they have been used during historical times. The relationships between humans and these objects, therefore, transcend socio-economical boundaries. The stones are mostly thought of as weights for digging sticks—but some groups in sub-Saharan Africa also had/have ritualised, symbolic relationships with them. Here, I explore bored stones in their ritual and spiritual contexts, drawing largely on historical accounts. I also provide a summary of archaeological finds to demonstrate the possible time depth of such relationships.

  • Fluid Rocks: The (de)Territorializing Power of Andean and Angkorian Sacred
           Stones

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The inherent qualities of stone (hardness, durability, etc.) can explain why it serves as a prime medium of the sacred in different cultures, and stones commonly fix boundaries and territorialize the religious landscape. An investigation of the qualia of stone thus provides a useful baseline for cross-cultural comparison. However, an analysis of Andean and Angkorian rock veneration demonstrates that the power of stones often lies not in their obdurate stasis but in their fluid capacity to interact with liquids and precipitate metamorphosis and deterritorialization. Ultimately, the worlds created by stony beings varied significantly, as determined by historically specific cosmologies.

  • The Stone, the Deer, and the Mountain: Lower Paleolithic Scrapers and
           Early Human Perceptions of the Cosmos

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Evidence from the Levantine Late Lower Paleolithic sites of Jaljulia and Qesem Cave suggests that Quina scrapers, an innovation in a category of tools used mostly for butchery, emerged with changes in hunting practices. Quina scrapers were often made of non-local flint from the Samarian highlands, a home range of fallow deer populations throughout the ages. The predominance of fallow deer in the human diet following the disappearance of megafauna made scrapers key tools in human subsistence. Particular stone tools and particular prey animals, thus, became embedded in an array of practical, cosmological, and ontological conceptions whose origin we trace back to Paleolithic times. The mountains of Samaria, a source of both animals and stone under discussion, were part of this nexus. We present archaeological and ethnographic evidence of the practical and perceptual bonds between Paleolithic humans, animals, stones, and the landscape they shared.

  • Quarries as Places of Significance in the Lower Paleolithic Holy Triad of
           Elephants, Water, and Stone

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Human dependency on stone has its origins in Lower Paleolithic times, and some of the most primordial elements in human-stone relationships are rooted in those early days. In this paper, we focus our attention on extensive Paleolithic stone quarries discovered and studied in the Galilee, Israel. We propose a triadic model that connects stone outcrops, elephants, and water bodies to shed light on what made stone quarries places of significance, beginning in the Lower Paleolithic, and continuing throughout the ages.

  • Material Sense: Perceptual Experience in Stone and Mineral Selection for
           Tool-Making

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Enactivism advocates for the dynamic character of human perception, regarding it as a multidirectional network comprising human presence and self-awareness within the world (eg., with materials, with objects, with and within locations). Thus, perception is not created by mental representations alone but by human presence and sensorimotor action and interaction in the world. This study emphasizes the vital role of perception and perceptual experience as enactive in human ontological perspectives concerning choosing and collecting stones and minerals. It will also suggest that the enactive perceptual experience of the environment occurs in its absence through memory and material relationships.
