Book: Assembling the Village in Medieval Bambuk

Chapter: Depositional Histories I: The East Quarter

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.24757


This chapter draws on the material practices and depositional pathways introduced in Chapter 5 to consider how subsurface artifacts and features were enrolled into everyday interactions within and between houses in the East Quarter of Diouboye and how these patterns persisted and/or changed through time. These material histories, in turn, provide a point of departure in subsequent chapters for tracing interactions outwards in social and physical space to the West Quarter of the village and beyond.
