The archaeological study of memory and remembrance depends upon an embodied and material perspective. It can draw upon the analysis of the relationships between people, landscape, and material culture, but also on evidence for embodied performances. By studying changes to bodies, objects, and places and the way in which they act as indices or traces of past actions we have the potential to understand the ways in which these changes were cited and recapitulated in the process of remembering.
