The Archaeology of Ritual
- ISBN: 0-7134-4870-9
This edited volume is the product of a major conference organised in UCLA in 2004. A number of leading archaeologists (including Renfrew, Hastorf, Marcus) and ritual theorists (Bell, Humphrey, McCauley and Lawson) have contributed with important articles debating not only on issues relating to ritual but also its very nature. My contribution to this volume is in the form of three chapters that include an introduction and a sizeable conclusion/discussion of the papers, but also a chapter on the problems faced by archaeology in ritual interpretation.
