Archaeological Semiotics

Condition: Good. Inscribed by the author to the late archaeologist Linda Cordell, from her library. Light scuffing, small chip to dust jacket. No tears, bends or folds. Binding tight.
“This interdisciplinary book examines archaeology’s engagement with semiotics, from its early structuralist beginnings to its more recent Peircian encounters. It represents the first sustained engagement with Peircian semiotics in archaeology, as well as the first discussion of how pragmatic anthropology articulates with anthropological archaeology. Its central thesis is that archaeology is a distinctive kind of semiotic enterprise; one devoted to giving meaning to the past in the present through the study of materiality. It compliments standard studies of linguistics and reformulates contemporary theories of material culture.” From the dustjacket.
