It focuses on relationships between anthropology and archaeology to understand how archaeologists study the past, and also to determine how archaeologists can effectively study material culture in a living context. Archaeologists can make direct observations of present-day cultural behavior as it is reflected in the things that people actually produce, use, and then discard, such as pottery and tools, as well as where and how people live, for example, their housing and subsistence. Selected archaeologically- and ethnographically-known peoples from Greece, the Pacific, and other world areas will be considered in order to provide details of ethnoarchaeological study of hunter-gatherer, pastoral and agricultural subsistence. Case studies from Greece include ones from the Aegean, Thrace, and Peloponnese areas.
