Embodied knowledge; perspectives on belief and technology.

Ed. by Marie Louise Stig Sorensen and Katharina Rebay-Salisbury.

Archaeologists and a few historians consider the concept of embodied knowledge by examining some of the apparently diverse yet shared forms of its manifestation in archaeological and historical contexts. Their topics include how burial practices of inhumation and cremation are linked to beliefs, protecting the body in Anglo-Saxon England, the role of healing in the Jesuit mission to China in 1582-1610, potting and embodied knowledge at the Bronze Age tell at Szazhalombatta in Hungary, and sensory aspects of metalworking technology.
