Evaluating and Establishing Ethnoarchaeological Theory for Anatolia

Chapter
Part of the One World Archaeology book series (WORLDARCH, volume 7)

Abstract

Even though the archaeology in Anatolia is quite rich and covers a long period, from prehistory to classical times, theoretical approaches surrounding it are rarely discussed. Moreover, an endeavour to interpret the data that has come about as a result of numerous excavations has not been the primary focus during the development of the discipline. Ethnoarchaeology should be undertaken within a theoretical framework, as has been debated for years by many colleagues. In Turkey, it is hard to talk about an ethnoarchaeological tradition; rather, we speak of ethnography. In this article, I will summarize the ethnographic background and discuss the problems of using a “direct ethnography” to interpret the archaeological data from a context such as Anatolia, which has a very active social geography in itself.
