Example text

It occurs as nuclei of varying size and intensity in a wider, less densely social, world. In some ways, ‘social tension’ might be a better phrase than social intensification, especially where change occurs as a build-up within groups or communities. We can liken it to the processes which go on in an individual where there is a build-up of tension in the desire to do something, such as taking drugs or committing a deviant crime. Or we can find a parallel in groups, such as rave parties or dances where hallucinatory practices can lead to intense levels of urgency and arousal.

Within such origins, more conventional roles in agriculture took place. Yet still the physical diversities of the new agricultural landscape could be appropriated as foci of social discourse. Fields mark territory or belonging; in their monumentality, they help communities come to terms with deteriorating pasture, flooding and the spread of peat (Ch. 5, p. 104); and, more narrowly, the process of their creation and maintenance (Ch. 3, p. 63) enables expressions of identity by specific age-gender groups, as by young unmarried women to older males, and their emergence as a cohesive societal force.

I see in my own School of History and Archaeology a spectrum in this: some of my colleagues are driven by passion for their subject irrespective of their own or others’ security and ease; some are driven by fastidiousness and detail as displacement for deeper research; while others are not especially interested in archaeology, using their job (administration or archaeology) to establish themselves in wider eyes.
