"The decisions that people make based on arguments of moral or ethical evaluation vary signiﬁcantly across cultural and geographical orders (D. Smith 2000: 5). Social practices of judging and deciding thus have a spatial dimension that is relevant for an understanding of not only how people create and conﬁgure dwelling spaces but also how the work of archaeologists or heritage managers can severely modify both the conceptualization and the material conﬁguration of particular places and landscapes."
