(p.358) Epilogue
Wetland Archaeology and Beyond

Francesco Menotti

Oxford University Press

This epilogue summarizes the content of each chapter and highlights the most prominent aspects of wetland archaeological research considered throughout the volume, leading the discussion towards possible future orientations within the discipline. It shows that despite outstanding efforts to (re)integrate wetland archaeology into mainstream archaeological reasoning, entirely satisfying results have yet to be achieved. The book argues for a proper contextualization of wet/wetland sites into a wider geographical as well as sociocultural area, more emphasis on people's identity, and the development of an apt, solid body of theory, for artefacts alone, even the best-preserved ones, do not speak for themselves.

Keywords:   wetland archaeology, archaeological research, wetland sites, mainstream archaeological, reasoning
