Auditory archaeology considers the potential contribution of
everyday, mundane and unintentional sounds in the past and how
these may have been significant to people. Steve Mills explores
ways of examining evidence to identify intentionality with respect
to the use of sound, drawing on perception psychology as well as
soundscape and landscape studies of various kinds. His methodology
provides a flexible and widely applicable set of elements that can
be adapted for use in a broad range of archaeological and heritage
contexts. The outputs of this research form the case studies of the
Teleorman River Valley in Romania, Catalhoyuk in Turkey, and West
Penwith, a historical site in the UK.This fascinating volume will
help archaeologists and others studying human sensory experiences
in the past and present.
