Abstract and Keywords

This article outlines the manner in which materials have come to be of concern to archaeologists, and explores some of the counter-modern approaches to materials that have developed since the 1970s. It examines the extent to which these approaches have impacted upon (and have been developed through) prehistoric hunter-gatherer studies and presents an overview of new and developing approaches to materials in hunter-gatherer studies. Case studies are drawn from the ethnographic literature as well as work on the Mesolithic in the UK and Europe.

Keywords: Mesolithic, materials, materiality, object biography, taskscape
