The Law of Social Inequality according to the Archaeology of Social Phenomena

Pascual Izquierdo-Egea

Arqueol. Iberoam.

Nomothetic archaeology, which developed from the “archaeology of social phenomena”, continues to formulate new laws. The “unified law of social inequality” holds that a human society will be less unequal or more egalitarian the smaller and poorer it is, the more resources it has, and the less conflict it supports. Conversely, a human society will be more unequal or less egalitarian the larger and richer it is, the fewer resources it has, and the more conflict it endures.

Law; social inequality; archaeology; social phenomena.
