Abstract

There have been few studies of how hunter–gatherers venerate topographic features and transform them into cultural landscapes by building structures and depositing artefacts. Ethnographic investigation of the material culture of the Khanty of western Siberia has documented this process, which has important implications for archaeologists studying past hunter–gatherer communities.
