Everyday Life Matters

University Press of Florida

Chapter 3 explores how archaeologists through the study of the materials and spaces of everyday life have furthered broader discussions of everyday life. It examines the intersecting dimensions of household, space, gender, and historical archaeology research in archaeology. Household archaeology draws attention to how past peoples organized and made meaningful their domestic spaces. Space, place, and landscape research expands this agenda to understand how all living spaces are meaningfully constructed and experienced by people across their daily lives. Feminist and gender archaeology have drawn explicit attention to the importance of incorporating all social groups into archaeological analyses--not just different genders, but different class, ethnic, and age groups. By studying the material remains of past societies that also produce historical records, historic archaeology draws particular attention to the material dimensions of past everyday life.
