The Archaeology of Mobility: Old World and New World Nomadismby Hans Barnard, Willeke Wendrich
Pub. Date: 07/01/2008
Publisher: The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology Press
There have been edited books on the archaeology of nomadism in various regions, and there have been individual archaeological and anthropological monographs, but nothing with the kind of coverage provided in this volume. Its strength and importance lies in the fact that it brings together a worldwide collection of studies of the archaeology of mobility. This book provides a ready-made reference to this worldwide phenomenon and is unique in that it tries to redefine pastoralism within a larger context by the term mobility. It presents many new ideas and thoughtful approaches, especially in the Central Asian region.
