Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This book provides the most up-to-date examination of the changing burial practices in Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age South Germany, a pivotal period and region in European Prehistory. Despite the richness of the archaeological evidence, only cursory discussions of the material have so far appeared in English. This major study not only provides a detailed synthetic account of mortuary practice and its related material culture but it is the first attempt to explore the relationship between material culture change and human 'subjectification', the process in which people subjectify themselves by establishing a relationship with material culture, in order to construct their own identity.
