4ème de couvertureThis book brings together contributions about the archaeological study of production processes. Through different case studies from Late Prehistoric Europe and the Mediterranean, it considers theoretical and methodological aspects of the research on technologies of production. It tries to bring answers to such questions as: how to identify and characterize working spaces? How to interpret them? How may we reconstruct the social framework in which the production processes took place, their temporality? What biases does the constitution of the archaeological record introduce in these reconstructions? Eleven papers consider these issues in different contexts, from Lebanon to Spain, and from potting to metal making.
