Overall, I found the volume a thought-provoking read, with several papers showcasing the real utility of memory studies in explaining social change and continuity. Material mnemonics was an aptly chosen title; mnemonic devices were not elegant theoretical constructions floating above material evidence but were grounded in it, emergent from it. This rapprochement of theory and data often seems a rarity in archaeological literature and should be celebrated. I suspect it will also lend the volume a wider readership; the papers are short on unexplained jargon yet reasonably self-reflexive and critical of modernist preconceptions when dealing with data.' -- Katie Hall Archaeological Review from Cambridge
