Abstract

Knez, Eugene I. The Modernization of Three Korean Villages, 1951-1981: An Illustrated Study of a People and Their Material Culture. Smithsonian Contributions to Anthropology, number 39,216 pages, 191 figures, 35 tables, 1997.—The "totality" of artifacts in three distinct villages, now consolidated into a city ward, represent an ethnohistorical perspective of material culture within a specific time-level of cultural evolution. Detailed descriptions of 413 selected artifacts are provided. These artifacts are assigned to four categories, namely Traditional, Traditional/Modified, New, and New/Modified, to reveal the number and distribution of artifacts in households and cultivated fields. Although the field study emphasizes the more durable objects, the perishables are also examined. The "totality" of artifacts will provide the reader "an archeology of the living" for Korean folk life.
