AbstractThis chapter examines the mechanisms and logics of the process of transformation that the emergence of the Iron Age represents. It highlights three main questions: first, that the process of change may be better understood under a general and long-term perspective, rather than as something circumstantial and concrete; secondly, that analysing social transformations does not only imply a focus on the short-term and straight changes, but also on the introduction of new material practices and cultural uses that are subject to reinterpretation and reuse through time and that, eventually, can set the basis for new, different contexts of social relation; and thirdly, that understanding social change does not only mean analysing its causes, but also, even at an initial level, to be aware of the mechanisms that drive it. The point here is that we need to explore not only why communities changed, but also why they changed the way they did and not in different ways.
