Mytum, H. (2007) Materiality and memory: An archaeological perspective on the popular adoption of linear time in Britain. Antiquity, 81 (312). pp. 381-396. ISSN 0003-598XFull text not available from this repository.
Archaeologists increasingly realise that prehistoric peoples had their own ideas about time. The concept of linear, measurable time emerged in learned Europe largely in the first millennium. Here the author tracks how, with the broadening of literacy in sixteenth-century Britain, dates start appearing on numerous items of popular culture. The dated objects in turn feed back into the way that people of all social levels began to see themselves and their place in history.
