Working Contexts.- The Archaeology of Dutch Capitalism and the Colonial Trade.- Status and Settlement in the Cape Colony.- Farm Lives.- Forging Identities.
Focuses on South Africa, but has significance that extends much wider than its immediate subject – which has relevance to all historical and archaeological research in the field of European colonialism and capitalism
This book examines how colonial identities were constructed in the Cape Colony of South Africa since its establishment in the 17th century up to the 20th century. It takes an explicitly archaeological approach, which also draws more widely on documentary material to examine how different people in the colony – from settler to slave – constructed identities through material culture. With the archaeological evidence, the book examines how these different groups were enmeshed within racial, sexual, and class ideologies in the broader context of capitalism and colonialism, and draws extensively on current social theory, in particular post-colonialism, feminism, and Marxism.
