A Matter of Substance, and the Substance of Matter
This concluding chapter reflects on the previous chapters, noting that the “ontological turn” calls for new ways of thinking about archaeological material. It notes in particular three themes that run through the various contributions: (1) using indigenous, post-conquest concepts to interrogate pre-Columbian materials; (2) rethinking the status of the human body; and (3) applying relational, or mereological, thinking to illuminate the Andean archaeological record.
