Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the archaeological analysis of human activity in a spatial context. It contends that attempts to categorize space and time are at the core of archaeology as a developing, coherent discipline over the last century-and-a-half or so, and it is essential to include a certain historical perspective when considering spatial archaeology. It shows that spatial archaeology is not a single approach, a single methodology, or an integrated sub-discipline of archaeology, but is something much more fundamental.

Keywords: human activity, spatial context, space and time, archaeology, archaeological methodology
