Title: Cultural Biography of Artifacts
Description: This is a student assignment for INTRODUCTION TO THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST, asking students to examine the cultural biography/social life of an Ancient Near Eastern artifact, to be accompanied with an image of the object posted on the wiki. Material culture studies today offers new approaches in understanding archaeological objects not simply from the point of their "original" making and the technologies involved in their making, but also through what happens to them in their lifespan. What alternative uses, meanings and identities do objects gather throughout their lives?
