Beyond the Walls

Charles R. Cobb

University Press of Florida

In this chapter, Cobb poses the question of what more we have to learn from the study of households given the long history of archaeological thought concerning what such a study is or is not. He addresses the broader issues of this volume by selecting several reoccurring themes as a way to answer this question. Cobb unpacks these themes while examining how each chapter successfully addresses them and advances the field while engaging with the work of other archaeologists and archaeological theorists who came before. He finds that the studies in this volume emphasize the blurry boundaries between the household and the larger fields in which it is enmeshed and that the volume’s authors impel us to think about household-scapes in wide terms that include the experiential dimensions of modernity as well as its political and economic facets.

Keywords:   modernity, history of archaeology, household archaeology, experiential archaeology, boundaries, archaeological theorists, politics, economics, modernity
