Originally published in 1991, this is the first book-length exploration of post-structuralist discourse theory in archaeology. It tackles the most basic problem of historical and archaeological analysis - the relationship between text and artefact – in an analysis of prehistoric art fusing theory and the practice of interpretation to create a fresh framework for understanding the relationship between past and present. Focusing on a collection of rock carvings from northern Sweden, the author shows how alternative conceptualizations of the material from structuralist, hermeneutic and structural-Marxist frameworks substantially alter our understanding of their meaning and significance. Engaging readers in an interpretive process, this book is for specialists in archaeology, anthropology, art history and cultural studies.

Chester’s Last Ride by Nathan Wright Nathan Wright has written a stirring adventure story in the best tradition of the western novel. It relates the difficult journey of Zeke Conley from Kentucky and his half-wolf dog, Big Ben, as they wander the frontiers for treasure and excitement. At last, Conley and his ever-faithful companion return home to help his family fight off swindlers and desperadoes. Here, there is rousing action enough to satisfy any reader, but it is in its depiction of the hardships and rewards of life in nature that Chester’s Last Ride rises to true inspiration as it conveys the feel of such details as the refuge of a campfire on a freezing night under the barren sky or the comradeship of a fellow’s horse and his big dog.
