We are what we make.

We manifest ideologies, identities, and mythologies into what we make. Even the act of creating an object becomes a magic of technology, time and memory, constantly changing nuances and directions with each new step on the path of humanity’s history. Objects tell us where peoples meet, and where they depart each other. They show innovations in technology, and the artisans craft in making myths come alive. They recall journeys, both actual and spiritual.

Material culture tells of who we are, why we are, and what we share. The artisan, artist and user all have their place to define in that journey from the past to now. 

The Via Archaeologica. 

The series of publications focus upon material culture in all its aspects and how it informs archaeological thought today. Submissions are welcome for monographs or edited volumes.
