This volume, the result of a collaboration between the Flemish Heritage Institute and the Brussels University consists of a collection of twenty-two papers on material culture offered tot prof. em. Frans Verhaeghe by his friends and colleagues from Belgium, Britain, The Netherlands, France and Denmark. Grouped in three sections - material culture, landscape and settlement, theory - these contributions represent Frans Verhaeghe's field of interest and work, in recognition of his contributions to the study of all aspects of material culture in a broad sense. The first section mainly contains contributions about pottery studies but non-pottery finds are also represented. Most papers in the second section combine the study of archaeological data with written sources. Subjects are the Merovingian cemetery of Broechem, the tombs of chiefs in northwestern Gaul, the role of Ename in the pagus Bracbatensis and the formation processes of a small town in Flanders, Aalst. Other papers discuss the meaning of mooated sites in coastal Flanders and waste disposal in medieval towns. The third section consists of a massive paper on social theory and post-medieval archaeology.
