|Abstrakt EN:||Do we imagine human past to be emotionally free? Do we ask questions about emotions associated with past societies and their material culture? Do we make our assumptions and interpretations emotionally charged? I believe these questions are worth asking and debating. Speaking about emotions explicitly can prevent their implicit infiltration into archaeological thinking and writing. In this paper I shall focus especially on emotional aspects of artefacts’ purpose, production and use in prehistory.|
