Wetland Archaeology and Beyond

Francesco Menotti

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses a variety of archaeological evidence in order to identify architectural structures characteristic of wetland environments and to try to bridge the gap of archaeological evidence between wetland and dryland occupations. This is done by identifying objects and artefacts, which are not necessarily typical of wetland sites, but have survived due to wet anaerobic conditions, and comparing them with those belonging to distinctive wetland groups. The contents of each section and subsection are organized in a descending chronological order, following, where possible, a west-east, north-south spatial distribution. The discussions cover houses and settlements in the wetlands, contact and transport, material culture, and sacred practices and beliefs in the wetlands.

Keywords:   wetland archaeology, archaeological evidence, settlements, material culture, sacred practices, beliefs, transport
