Archaeology and Gendered Magic

An Introduction

(p.1) 1 Archaeology and Gendered Magic
The Archaeology of Magic

C. Riley Augé

University Press of Florida

Chapter 1 introduces readers to the necessity of archaeological consideration of belief as a primary driving force behind daily decision making and praxis, while providing a brief history of the archaeology of magic and study of magical beliefs. It defines gender and situates it in relationship to the use of magic in the seventeenth century to create protective barriers. To reveal the traditional beliefs and rationales behind such practices requires knowledge of the folklore of the people under study. Finally, it provides chapter summaries to guide readers through the remainder of the volume.

Keywords:   Archaeology of Magic, Gender, Magical beliefs, Folklore, Protective barriers
