Outline

3.Post-processual
1.Cultural Historical Interpretation
Asks why and how things happened in the past
Analogs in CHI have a normative view of culture
CHI emphasises chronology(time) and cultural change
Models are diachronic finds/describes changes in arch. record over time
Internal cultural models describe mech. of change in a particular culture
Inevitable variation views are that all cultures change over time not
very good for interpretation(it is too simplistic)
Cultural Invention: new ideas originate in a culture, whether devised or
accidentally
An invention has to be culturally accepted; in order for it to attribute to a
particular place and time, it must be proved not to be the product of trade
networks or other outer influences!
