Abstract

Hunter-gather studies until recently have been dominated by an ecological framework which assumes scarcity and calorie-harvesting to be the structural element which preconditions social relationships. This has always stood in stark contrast the worldview of hunter-gatherers themselves who experience the landscape and animals as social entities and who negotiate relationships on this basis. Recently, a starker school, motivated by an ontological turn, sketch out separate domains of material objects and animate entities while entangled can never engage socially ever at all. Here I wish to discuss recent advances in geoarchaeological methodology including soil chemical studies and microelement analysis which has led to a new narrative arena where human-animal relationships are embedded into landscapes in a literal way yet also a reflective and active way. The emplacement of ecology through laboratory talk ironically leads to a set of postulates where First People narratives and Scientific narratives begin to start from the same premise.
