This interdisciplinary book examines archaeology’s engagement with semiotics, from its early structuralist beginnings to its more recent Peircian encounters.

It represents the first sustained engagement with Peircian semiotics in archaeology, as well as the first discussion of how pragmatic anthropology articulates with anthropological 4/5(1). Semiotics is the theory and study of how communication occurs through the use of signs and symbols.

A hundred years ago, I cobbled together an interdisciplinary master's degree in human communication theory. The mental muscles developed in that pursuit have not been much exercised since/5.

A more down to earth book on "Semiotics" is Daniel Chandler's "Semiotics: The Basics." It's far more practical, and there's far less pretension.

Still, it would appear that semioticians are yet struggling with basic definitions and lack coherent by: I feel like Eco's book occupies a sort of awkward position for a lot of semioticians.

On one hand, it's overly descriptive for a lot of purposes, and this becomes evident when you look at critical theorists who utilise semiotics, i.e Barthes, Althusser, that there really is no particular need to delve into as much detail as does Eco, and so therefore it seems more useful to isolate certain 4/5.

But for me, Chandler's "Semiotics" opened the door to semiotics as a field of study in and of itself. And in the years since, I have gone on to pursue semiotics both as my profession and life's work. In other words, this book had a significant impact on my life.
