Relics: Modern Heuristics
Posted in the Archaeology Forum
#1 Jun 19, 2014
In the superstition-attention Hollywood (USA) film "The Exorcist" (1973), a priest-archaeologist scours the sands of the tombs of Ancient Egypt and discovers an unusual spiritualism artifact that seems to represent some unnamed fear about human imagination.
We know of the stories of archaeologists digging in areas supposedly protected by ancient culture incantations of territory fencing and there are even folk tales of archaeologists getting sick when they trespass these apparently forbidden areas.
Archaeologists try to separate science from superstition in the hunt for intellectually evocative artifacts and relics.
Certainly for our age of consumerism culture (i.e., eBay), the wide availability of mercantilism goods makes the academic hunt for toys and relics a thing of great human relevance.
Understanding humanity's appraisal of goods and crafts reveals the intellectual value of relevant divination focus social art totems such as the perception-collection Hollywood (USA) film "The Apparition" (2012).
