Resumen

Edited by Duncan Sayer and Howard Williams. Building upon Heinrich Härke#s influential research on burial archaeology and early medieval migrations, and in particular, his ground-breaking work on the relationship between the theory and practice of burial archaeology, this book sets a new agenda for mortuary archaeology. Using archaeological data, the essays explore how mortuary practices have served in the make-up and expression of medieval social identities. Applying explicit theoretical perspectives to case studies based on a range of European sites (from Scandinavia to Britain, Southern France to the Black Sea), Mortuary Practices and Social Identities in the Middle Ages fulfils the need for a volume that provides accessible material to students, engages with current debates in mortuary archaeology#s methods and theories and explores the interpretation of medieval identities through burial data.
