Description The contribution describes the process of "archaeologisation" of the life of a Mongolian family over a period of approximately two months.The objective of the study is to document as many relations as possible between the final static "archaeological" record and the process preceeding it. My intention was to point out the importance of ethnographic observations that, when aimed at relations between the dynamic situations and their material reflections, can significantly enrich our capacity to understand "silent" prehistoric cultures.
