This chapter discusses some of the theoretical means by which the evidence is approached with regards to the mortuary practices of the Neolithic Near East. It first provides a brief history of archaeological theory, specifically in relation to mortuary archaeology, with particular emphasis on the main theoretical trends in archaeological practice such as culture-history, New Archaeology, processualism and post-processualism, as well as the impact of these theoretical approaches on the study of the Neolithic Near East. It then turns to an analysis of mortuary practices in the Near East.

Keywords:   mortuary practices, Neolithic, Near East, archaeological theory, archaeology, culture-history, New Archaeology, processualism, post-processualism
