Cherry eds. Whittaker ed. The journal Childhood in the Pastcompensates for these previous shortcomings. Reading the first issue of the journal, it is obvi-ous that it has the potential to live up to its goalof being a global cross-over forum for researchon children and childhood, a forum whichtranscends established disciplines and chrono-logical periods.

This is an admirable ambition or perhaps more accurately phrased, a vision and of course not something easy to live up to. Although the authors in this first issue comefrom a wide range of disciplines, all but onehas an academic position in Europe, most ofthem in the UK. Far more authors are womenthan men. Most of the case-studies presentedare from Europe. It is a future challenge for the editorial. If not carefully nursededitorially the ambition could easily turn intoempty words. However, reading the first issuegives no reason for distrust. It yields interest-ing and thoughtful articles, and I am lookingforward to following the development of thismuch-needed journal.

Households have had a place within culturaltheory since the s and are a commonresearch subject in many different disciplines. Under the auspices of the New Archaeology,archaeologists have used finds from housefloors of Mesoamerican communities to under-stand socioeconomic and demographical char-acteristics of prehistoric communities. Substantialcontributions to this field of study have beenmade by diverse ethnoarchaeological studiesto identify households in various locationsaround the world, such as those undertaken inwestern Iran byWatson Households areconceptually considered as being synonymouswith the family, a group contemporaneouslyliving under the same roof.

A household is thesmallest social unit that shapes its responsibil-ities and duties within the framework ofsocioeconomic and cultural life. Understandingthe common life of and the interpersonalrelations within a household under the sameroof is of considerable import in interpretivecultural theory. Using this basic unit of societyto model social and cultural practice allowsarchaeologists to identify diachronic change insocial organization and the socio-cultural rolesin a settlement via the cultural remains ofthose households.

However, a common point of obstruction for. Any attempt to include communitiesand their behavioural styles within a particulargeneralization can lead to false inferences. In otherwords, a generalizing tendency in interpretativetemplates for household life undervalues thepossible diversity in the community.

The keyelement which defines the existence of a house-hold is the setting place which belongs solelyto it and separates it from others. The setting iswhere the household distinguishes itself fromthe community it belongs to, and where it keepsits identity and the habits and elements broughtalong from the past; where the household rein-forces its existence and relationship with theworld and mostly where it feels safe. The set-tings and people form a biography together. Understanding the diversity of this biography is. A product of Souvatzis doctoral thesis,. Above all,Souvatzi has chosen the right time for publish-ing this important study.

In the last 10 years ourknowledge of the Greek Neolithic has startedto consolidate rapidly, and the primary impor-tance of this study is that it details thoroughlythe lifestyles of Greek Neolithic communities. In the book, generally, Souvatzi states that thebehaviours of households are more significantthan their morphology. The author emphasizesthat understanding the diversity of householdsis more useful for understanding the differentroles in the settlement than understandingtheir modes of production, redistribution, andcommunication associated with production.

Chapter One, The household in social. The place of the household inthe theory of social science, the diversity ofdefinitions of it, and the relationship betweenthe two are treated quite systematically. Chapter Two, The household as process in asocial archaeology, is about the place of thehouseholds in archaeological theory, and howunderstanding of this has developed and takenshape over the course of time. The chapterstarts with examples taken from several recentstudies in different geographical regions ofthe world, highlighting research shaped by theprogress of processual archaeology within therealm of social theory.

The examples given ofhousehold archaeology with the coming of thepost-processual storm are explored as newapproaches to the complex world of house-holds, which cannot be confined within sim-plistic conceptual templates. This position isthe major theme followed by the authorthroughout the book. This chapter is the moststriking and, with Chapters Three and Seven,forms the core utility of the book. ChapterThree, The Neolithic of Greece, as suggestedby the title, gives a brief history and chronologyof research on Neolithic Greece, as well asdescribing the general characteristics ofNeolithic settlements and definitive culturalelements of the era.

The Role of Households at the Dawn of the Bronze Age

The review is particularlyuseful in highlighting the advances in Greek. Neolithic research in the last 10 years in partic-ular, as well as the acquisition of new knowl-edge, the increasing number of new questions,and the relationships between such questionsand households Halstead ; Perls Chapter Four, The ideal and the real: Theexamples of Early Neolithic Nea Nikomediaand Middle Neolithic Sesklo, addresses thedaily life and social roles in households in thelight of the data obtained fromNea Nikomediaand Sesklo, two key settlements of the GreekNeolithic.

The author analyses the householdpatterns in two settlements that are chronolog-ically successive in this chapter, moving on tothe structure of the households that becamecomplex during the Late Neolithic based onthe example of Dimini, another key settlement,in Chapter Five, Complexity is not only abouthierarchy: Late Neolithic Dimini, a detailedcase study in household organisation. With the example of Dimini, one of the con-.

Dimini is a problematic settle-ment in terms of context despite the extensiveexcavations undertaken. Some theories for thefunction of the enclosure wall of Dimini havebeen put forward, with debate focusing onwhether the wall served defensive purposes orwas indicative of social differences. Souvatzihas conducted a systematic analysis of Dimini,notwithstanding a series of difficulties with thematerial, such as absence of systematic study ofmost of the artefacts. The inference about theenclosuresmade in this chapter is that they rep-resent a symbolic emphasis on the communitysidentity p.

Both chaptersconstituting the dataset of the book will providea useful source for Neolithic settlements notonly in Greece but also those discovered in theAnatolian Aegean and western Anatolia inrecent years zdogan and Basgelen Chapter Six, Homogeneity or diversity? Households as variable processes, contains alarger-scale evaluation. The houses, settlementsand material cultural elements are taken upwithin the framework of the variables of timeand setting, with examples given from differ-ent settlements in an attempt to get a completepicture of the region. The big picture of thisbook hopes to show the effects of large-scale.

ChapterSeven, Evolution or contingency? Householdsas transitional processes, is the most valuablepart of the book. The authors study blendswith the social theory in this chapter and pro-vides the books conclusion with a roadmapand inferences which will prove invaluablefor future researchers working on this subject. An alternative perspective on the interpreta-tion of and inferences made about the materialculture of the Greek Neolithic, and not only interms of household archaeology, is introduced. The final chapter of the book, Household andbeyond: implication and prospect for socialarchaeology, furthers this interpretation andconcisely summarizes the purpose and limitsof the study.

Roughly 63 Neolithic settlements have. In ,archaeologists, especially those from Britainand America, made concerted efforts to under-stand long-distance exchange and trade in theAegean and the Mediterranean. ConcurrentNeolithic research and data collection methodswere based on a culture historical approach. They focused on the process of becomingNeolithic in the region and on migration-related effects in those sites which were thoughtto be oldest, dating thousands of years laterthan the first settled communities in the NearEast. Today, Greece is an important location forresearch that has progressed rapidly in the last10 years thanks to local developments andinteractions with other regions Halstead ;Perls Diversification of production ofarchaeological knowledge is themost importantfactor in understanding the cultural characteris-tics of the region in more detail.

In this context,Souvatzi provides conceptual guidance onunderstanding the behavioural patterns of theearly settlers of the region and offers sugges-tions for future research in other regions usingher alternative interpretations of householdarchaeology and the methods appropriate to it.
