Description

This volume derives from a session held at the 2010 Theoretical Archaeology Group conference (Bristol University). The aims of this session were to explore occurrences of compromise (or making do) and repair (mending) in the past, with a particular focuson material culture. This original scope broadened to encompass reuse – inextricably linked to the central themes, particularly when considered through a biographical approach.
