Some tweets from tonight's #ACEflagship seminar, in which Ian Hodder (Stanford) shows us his research on Evolution and Entanglement.
Entanglements have diachronic as well as synchronic elements: some processes in entanglements have to happen in specific sequences (clay - brick - house - eroded colluvian - mortar - house, eg)

Our first flagship seminar of 2018-19 features @nmacsweeney speaking on Fragmentation theory and Classical texts. Keep an eye out for #ACEFlagship to follow the fun!
Archaeology deals with fragments through examining things at the level of the assemblage. An assemblage approach can also be useful for looking at fragmentary classical texts.
A chocolate orange is now making it's way around the room... 🤔
@nmacsweeney takes us into theories of fragmentation!
