Body Matters

Exploring the Materiality of the Human Body

Adopting a novel cross-disciplinary approach, this book demonstrates the value of understanding human bodies as fundamentally influenced and affected by the other materials available in diverse landscapes. Using a rich mix of ethnographic, archaeological and historical examples, it explores the creative roles materials have taken in shaping past and present people’s bodies.
