Continental connections: concluding discussion

Continental connections: concluding discussion
It is all too easy to fall into established tropes when considering the changing nature of continental connections – to discuss ‘isolated islands’ or ‘hyper connected seaways’. Part of the trouble lies in the fact that, as with many other clichés, each of these extremes has proven to be true at different points in time: from the impact of changing palaeogeography on hominin habitation patterns in the Palaeolithic, through to more recent movement of goods and people across seaways. As such, the papers in this volume have made clear the need for a more subtle appreciation of movement, communication and interaction than stereotypical presumptions permit. This re-evaluation requires a careful consideration both of how we determine connectivity from archaeological remains and, just as significantly, of how we frame the topic and orientate ourselves in relation to it

Abstract

It is all too easy to fall into established tropes when considering the changing nature of continental connections – to discuss ‘isolated islands’ or ‘hyper connected seaways’. Part of the trouble lies in the fact that, as with many other clichés, each of these extremes has proven to be true at different points in time: from the impact of changing palaeogeography on hominin habitation patterns in the Palaeolithic, through to more recent movement of goods and people across seaways. As such, the papers in this volume have made clear the need for a more subtle appreciation of movement, communication and interaction than stereotypical presumptions permit. This re-evaluation requires a careful consideration both of how we determine connectivity from archaeological remains and, just as significantly, of how we frame the topic and orientate ourselves in relation to it
