Abstract [en]

In his article, Rob Wiseman argues that archaeology is currently too limited in its ways to understand rituals, especially with regard to mortuary practices, and that this limitation is due to our attachment to van Gennep’s (1909) seminal work on rites of passage. Instead, he proposes that we apply CMT, considering other overarching metaphors to understand change, such as that of the growth of plants. While I see the need to constantly critique and fine-tune archaeological approaches to rituals, I am not convinced by the author’s argument.
