An extensive exploration into the production and significance of lines. In his book, Tim Ingold lays the foundations for an anthropological archaeology of the line. As walking, talking, gesticulating creatures, human beings generate lines wherever they go.
"What do walking, weaving, observing, storytelling, singing, drawing and writing have in common?
The answer is that they all proceed along lines. In this extraordinary book, Tim Ingold imagines a world in which everyone and everything consists of interwoven or interconnected lines and lays the foundations for a completely new discipline: the anthropological archaeology of the line."
