Resumo

A compreensão do passado na arqueologia é muito influenciada pela maneira como o tempo é espacializado nesta disciplina. Baseado em trabalho de campo etnográfico entre arqueólogos, este artigo examina o uso das expressões sobre o tempo e a relação entre palavras e gestos. Demonstra-se que conceitos importantes na disciplina referem-se à experiência em face de um passado profundo sob o solo e de uma temporalidade vertical, que evolui do fundo ao topo. A analise traz ideias sobre a relação entre movimento corporal e conceitualização diferentes daquelas da linguística cognitiva, demonstrando que os conceitos não são entidades abstratas, mas são co-emergentes e contínuos com as maneiras como os arqueólogos se apropriam do ambiente gravitacional na prática. Isto tem implicações importantes para se compreender como o conhecimento é constituído nas ciências que escavam o passado, que desafia algumas compreensões difundidas do conhecimento disciplinar como entidades autocontidas que se destacam de um encontro ecológico com o mundo das coisas.
