This book does not aim at a “true” story of prehistoric belief, but rather an account of how eight different archaeologists imagine past religions. It is their purpose to observe and analyse how archaeologists think about that fuzzy thing called “religion.”
Papers range from a comparative history of research to new interpretational frames of hidden art. Authors question the established sacred-profane divide and explore the concept of liminality; they tear down the borders between humans and animals, the animate and the inanimate.
