Economies of Duration in Urban Archaeology (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only James R Dixon.

Looking to urban life in the recent past, present and future, conventional archaeological chronologies are of less relevance than in deeper history. Instead, we might replace ordered time with duration, time-as-experienced, in our analyses. However, if we want to look at the duration of individual events in the city, we run the risk of reducing our work to a point where it is essentially meaningless, considering single seconds in individual lives at the expense of a 'bigger picture'.

Numbers and time: The role of materiality in numerical cognition (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Karenleigh Overmann.

Numerical elaboration and the extension of numbers to non-tangible domains such as time have been linked to cultural complexity in several studies. However, the reasons for this phenomenon remain insufficiently explored. In the present analysis, Material Engagement Theory, an emerging perspective in cognitive archaeology, provides a new perspective from which to reinterpret the cultural nexus in which quantification and timekeeping develop. These insights are then applied to representative...


A thousand ruins: an alternative history of contemporary Spain. (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Alfredo González-Ruibal.

An alternative history of late modern Spain can be narrated through its ruins. In this paper, I will examine the debris of different modernist dreams that were shattered by the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent dictatorship. I will argue that the ruins of utopia are not exactly remnants of the past, but of the future - or rather, an alternative time that is made of both. From this point of view, they allow us to problematize notions of temporality in archaeology and envisage richer...


Time, Discipline and Punishment: Private and state capitalism in northern Sweden in the seventeenth century (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Jonas Nordin.

In the seventeenth century the Danish and Swedish states strengthened their control over the northernmost areas of Fenno-Scandinavia: Sápmi. Borders were constructed, market-places founded and the Lutheran Church gained a firm foothold through mission and the founding new churches. A main force in this development was the hunger for the regions resources, such as pearls, furs, precious stones and metals. Through landscape analysis and the study the material remains of several sites, spatial...
