Mobility and Historical Gravity: Space, Entanglement and Movement in a Collaborative World
This paper explores the complementary concepts of mobility and historical gravity that are part of the larger issue of theorizing space in Historical Archaeology. Within the context of a collaborative project involving The Fiske Center for Archaeological Research at the University of Massachusetts Boston and the Nipmuc Nation, these two concepts ‘ mobility and historical gravity ‘ have been instrumental in developing our current understanding of the manner in which colonialism has influenced the course of history over the past 400 years. Drawing on research surrounding the Hassanamesit Woods Project the authors of this paper outlined how they have sought to understand the intersection of entanglement and mobility in shaping the various spaces inhabited by indigenous actors and their English co-residents.
