Breaking the Surface offers comprehensive discussions of the philosophy of holes and perforations, the linguistic anthropology of cut- and break-words, and the perceptual psychology of concavities. The book offers a revelatory way to handle the archaeological past and is a major step forward in the growing subdiscipline of art and archaeology.
