Ritual and Feasting in the Field: The Role of Theoretically Informed Practice In Creating Resilience within the Archaeological Field Crew
Author(s): Alison Rautman
Katherine Spielmann has contributed to the scholarly literature on ritual and feasting, the archaeology of sustainable and resilient societies, and long-term economic and social changes in archaeological record of the Salinas region in central New Mexico. Less well known, however, are her long-term contributions to the performance dimensions of these models. In fact, her theoretically informed archaeological practices, implemented in the context of the undergraduate field school, illustrate the importance of ritual and also feasting in fostering productive and resilient working relationships among crew members in the small-scale, short-lived social world of archaeological field work.
