Playing with Flint: Tracing a Child’s Imitation of Adult Work in a Lithic Assemblage
Malmö Heritage. (Arkeologi)ORCID iD: 0000-0002-8747-4131
2008 (English)In: Journal of archaeological method and theory, ISSN 1072-5369, E-ISSN 1573-7764, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 112-131Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper examines the potential for identifying play and children’s imitation in the archaeological record and reviews cultural constructions of play and cross-cultural behaviour. A case study, using a lithic assemblage from a discrete knapping area for Scandinavian Neolithic axe production in Southern Sweden which identifies a child´s activity area, is discussed. The theoretical and methodological assumptions behind play, imitation and its identification as well as its social implications are also examined.
