Chalcolithic Cult and Risk Management at Teleilat Ghassul

Details

This monograph presents a full report of excavations at the Area E sanctuary at the Jordanian site of Teleilat Ghassul. Peta Seaton analyses the features which enable the site to be identified as a cult institution, and using comparative data from other sites in the region, builds a picture for the development of cultic practices in the Chalcolithic. In particular her conclusions discuss the role of cult and politics in managing social complexity, and in managing risk to the settlement's economy.
