This book investigates the sensuous material qualities of stone-from golden honeycombed limestone, to frozen waves of Cambrian sandstone. Tactile sensations, sonorous qualities, color, and visual impressions are all shown to play a previously unrecognized yet vital part in understanding the power of prehistoric monuments, from Neolithic temples to Bronze Age rock carvings, in relation to their landscapes.

Home Browse Books Book details, The Materiality of Stone: Explorations i.The Materiality of Stone: Explorations in Landscape Phenomenology. By Christopher Tilley. This book is the first in a projected series of three volumes concerned with landscape phenomenology and prehistory. It follows on from themes introduced in two previous works, A Phenomenology of Landscape (Tilley 1994) and Metaphor and Material Culture (Tilley 1999a). All the studies presented here are concerned with the significance of ‘natural’ and ‘cultural’ stones in various landscapes of prehistoric Europe from the Neolithic to the Iron Age.

Findings demonstrated that whilst the prevalence of MMPR is increasing, the majority of this work is conducted within the health sciences and prioritises the phenomenological phase.

This book is the first of a projected trilogy by which aims to address the phenomenology of prehistoric landscapes. In this volume Chris Tilley seeks to explore the many different ways in which prehistoric social identities were created, sustained, reproduced or transformed, through the agency of stones. The book is divided into five chapters. The introduction sets down the theoretical and methodological perspectives, while the following three chapters each explore a different study area in relation to the over-riding theme of the materiality of stone

It is, however, an attempt shot through with paradox and contradiction. Apart from a general theoretical introduction and a short concluding chapter, the book comprises three substantial case studies, each focusing on ancient monuments of massive stone or rock. The first study is of the neolithic menhirs or standing stones of Brittany; the second is the temple architecture of neolithic Malta, and the third is of Bronze Age carvings in southern Sweden.

With Wayne BennettFrom the silky wax qualities of the surfaces of some quartz menhirs to the wood-grain textures of others, to the golden honeycombed limestones of Malta, to the icy frozen waves of the Cambrian sandstone of south-east Sweden, this book investigates the sensuous material qualities of stone. Tactile sensations, sonorous qualities, colour, and visual impressions are all shown to play a vital part in our understanding of the power and significance of prehistoric monuments in relation to their landscapes. In The Materiality of Stone, Christopher Tilley presents a radically new way of analyzing the significance of both 'cultural' and 'natural' stone in prehistoric European landscapes. Tilley's groundbreaking approach is to interpret human experience in a multidimensional and sensuous human way, rather than through an abstract analytical gaze. The studies range widely from the menhirs of prehistoric Brittany to Maltese Neolithic temples to Bronze Age rock carvings and cairns in southern Sweden. Tilley leaves no stone unturned as he also considers how the internal spaces and landscape settings are interpreted in relation to artifacts, substances, and related places that were deeply meaningful to the people who inhabited them and remain no less evocative today.In its innovative approach to understanding human experience through the tangible rocks and stone of our past, The Materiality of Stone is both a major theoretical and substantive contribution to the field of material culture studies and the study of European prehistory.
