Description:

Uses period literature and a consumer behavior model to investigate the attitudes toward the acquisition and use of wealth among 17th-century English North Americans. Analyzes data from domestic archaeological sites in Maryland and Virginia, interpreting patterns in the construction of household identities and placing those within the social and cultural context of the region. The analysis draws on recent developments in contextual theory. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
