Date(s): 1999

Creator(s): Fowler, Christopher John

Scope & Content: PhD thesis submitted to the Department of Archaeology, Faculty of Arts, University of Southampton. The thesis explores the theme of personhood in prehistory and discusses the prevalent interpretative schemes which archaeologists use to understand prehistoric people, prehistoric bodies and social relationships. Two main theories that are employed in this study are both geared towards understanding social relationships and the way personhood is generated through activity: performativity and personhood. An appendix includes a catalogue of main Manx Neolithic sites referred to in the text.
