Landscapes of mobility: the flow of place

David, Bruno and Lamb, Lara and Kaiwari, Jack (2014) Landscapes of mobility: the flow of place. In: The Oxford handbook of the archaeology and anthropology of hunter-gatherers. Oxford Handbooks Online. Oxford University Press, Oxford, United Kingdom, pp. 1163-1190. ISBN 978-0-19-955122-4


Mobility concerns the ways and logics of movement from place to place. Understanding hunter-gatherer mobility
across the landscape is always located in the ontology of the observer, and must therefore take into account the
perspectives from which we try to make sense of past mobility. This article explores and critiques past and current approaches to landscapes of mobility, and present future directions, reflecting on implications for how we have come to construct very particular understandings of the past. It concludes by discussing how archaeological
modelling constructs its own myths based on ontological pre-understandings, and the role that the archaeology of
landscapes of hunter-gatherer mobility has played in this.
