Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

[De]

Literally, to create again something that once existed or is believed to have existed but which no longer survives. In archaeology this usually involves making what is essentially a replica of something based on research and the examination of similar examples elsewhere. Most re‐creations involve the application of imagination, some far more than others. All, however, reflect the contemporary understanding of what it is they are trying to re‐create.

Subjects: Archaeology.
