      Ethno-Analogy and the Reconstruction of Prehistoric Artefact Use and
      Production

      Linda R. Owen & Martin Porr (eds.)

      This volume contains 19 edited papers on the use of analogical reasoning
      for the reconstruction of prehistoric artefacts, which were held at a
      conference in Tübingen in 1997. The focus is not on theoretical debates,
      but on case studies which demonstrate how analogical reasoning can be
      applied to specific archaeological problems. By relating historic,
      ethnographic and experimental studies to archaeological phenomena, the
      contributions show how new insights can be gained into the complicated
      processes of artefact use and production. The detailed studies from five
      continents handle a variety of materials and objects (e.g. beads, pottery,
      figurines, stone and bone tools, leather, medicine wheels, tipi rings) from
      different time periods. In doing so, they use diverse interpretative
      techniques, methods and approaches (e.g. functional analysis,
      experimentation, the study of artefact distributions). The book is thus an
      important contribution to analytical and interpretative techniques in
      archaeology. It is also evidence of the large range of archaeological
      research being carried out in both the New and Old Worlds which crosses
      disciplinary boundaries. All of the articles are in English and have
      English, German and French abstracts.
