Everyday Life Matters

(p.197) 8 Conclusion
Everyday Life Matters

Cynthia Robin

University Press of Florida

Chapter 8 concludes this book by reinforcing the three assertions suggested by the title of this book: (1) everyday life matters because what people do on a daily basis is critical in the construction of their societies; (2) everyday life is the matter of much of the archaeological record; and (3) studying everyday life matters for archaeologists’ interpretations of human societies. With the Chan case study as an exemplar, theorists, anthropologists, archaeologists, and other scholars can appreciate how some of prehistory’s most important lessons are gleaned from studies of everyday life.

Keywords:   everyday life, archaeology, social theory, archaeological theory, Maya, prehistory, farmers, sustainability, Chan, community
