Constructing the Sacred: Visibility and Ritual Landscape at the Egyptian Necropolis of Saqqara

Introduction: Note 97

Gavin Lucas, The Archaeology of Time, Themes in Archaeology (London: Routledge, 2005), 40–41 discusses the importance of duration in archaeological chronology. He notes that, by emphasizing duration, we can better “understand the experience of change and temporality at any given moment by the inhabitants of a site, as it will be dependent on what aspects of their space or material world are changing. A whole complex of temporalities is potentially identifiable and one may get a richer sense of how the passage of time may have been perceived through the way different elements change at different rates or scales.”
