    3. Critical commentary 2: option 1 2 items
      Both the articles listed below have a similar aim (to provide a largely cognitive explanation for the placement of monuments within a landscape), but they adopt very different theoretical perspectives.

    1. Tutorial 1: What does 'culture' mean to archaeologists? 2 items
      A central concept in archaeology and anthropology is 'culture'. Much debated at the time of the New Archaeology, when the concept of discrete and static peoples cam under attack, subsequent theoretical developments have further challenged an easy association between artefacts, language and ethnicity. Yet 'culture' and its implications for identity remain powerful and controversial issues, as the readings demonstrate.

    2. Tutorial 2: Why is objectivity a contentious issue? 4 items
      The nature of 'objectivity' and its place in science are problems at the heart of the disagreements between 'processual' and 'post-processual' archaeologists. While early polemic in the 1980s from some post-processualists characterised processual attempts to be scientific as bogus at best, and dangerous at worst, more recently the debate has focused on what exactly 'science' is.

    3. Tutorial 3: How does theory relate to method? 3 items
      The question of how theory influences method in the field remains an extremely important one in terms of the relationship between the different branches of professional archaeology. Much current field practice is based upon processual archaeological foundations, so what impact might post-processual critiques of these have? The debate between Ian Hodder and Fekri Hassan helps bring to light some of the issues.

    4. Tutorial 4: Where does archaeological theory come from? 3 items
      A frequent charge against the way archaeological theory has developed is that it is excessively reliant on theories from other disciplines. This is actually a strength which follows on from the all-encompassing endeavour of archaeology to understand past societies, but there are certainly problems and challenges in translating ideas from other disciplines - most often sociology, philosophy and the natural sciences - into archaeology. The debate about evolutionary theory in archaeology serves to highlight some of these points.
