There were tensions between the advocates of Marxist and neo-Marxist perspectives, and these tended to be expressed over notions of agency, class, structure, and meaning. Bruce Trigger (1985), for example, critiqued the neo-Marxists for what he saw as tendencies toward relativism (see also Patterson 1989). The main area of overlap, however, was the common belief in an emancipatory archaeology, the idea that archaeology has a transformative role to play in the modern world. Perhaps the most important development of this period was the archaeology of gender.

While arguing for greater objectivity, Binford explicitly acknowledged that our theories and assumptions fundamentally condition what we accept as fact. What underlay processual archaeology, and its variants, was the view that archaeology could be divorced from its social context. One does archaeology first and then attends to its social contexts and consequences. The implication here is that the doing of archaeology can be separated off from its social uses and that only the former was true archaeology.

In archaeology, this is perhaps exemplified by the emergence of postprocessual archaeologies and the gradual incorporation of questions of identity, meaning, agency, and practice alongside those of system, process, and structure. This development, of course, should not be interpreted to mean that process or structure has been superseded. The social must always be positioned within a longterm trajectory and linked to the cognitive. Rather, it means that in terms of the doing of archaeology, there are increasingly more studies deploying social categories in pursuit of a past that holds relevance in today’s world.
