1. Gray, Elizabeth. Material culture of high-status drinking ritual in medieval and early modern Gaelic Ireland .

Degree: 2016, National University of Ireland – Galway

This thesis is the first comprehensive study of ritual drinking vessels of horn and wood from later medieval and early modern Gaelic Ireland. The research provides an analysis of the drinking vessels and offers an interpretation of the roles of methers, goblets and horns in drinking rituals of Gaelic elites, during the period 1200 – 1600 AD. The archaeological record indicates that horn and wood were the preferred materials for the manufacture of high-status drinking vessels, with the quadrangular wooden mether or meadar predominant in Irish museum collections. The aims of the thesis are to determine how methers, goblets and horns functioned in Gaelic drinking rituals and why organic material was the preferred choice for drinking vessels. Some of the reasons why drinking horns were gradually replaced by methers, from c. 1300 onwards are also explored. The methodology adopted for this thesis involved detailed recording and analysis of the extant corpus of drinking vessels housed in Irish repositories. In tandem with this, the research engaged with an examination of historical and literary sources relating to medieval drinking ritual. AMS C14 dates were obtained for a small sample of Gaelic wooden drinking vessels, in order to inform a timeframe for their manufacture and use. Experimental archaeology was undertaken to seek clarification on the performance and protocol of Gaelic drinking ritual and to determine how the unique form of Gaelic drinking methers performed in a ritual context. The theoretical framework applied to the thesis examines archaeological and anthropological approaches to ritual and, in particular, to ritual drinking and the long established relationship between ritual, alcohol and the establishment of power, status and social boundaries. It also includes commentary on the gendered aspects of drinking ritual. Among the principal findings of the research are that there was an affinity with organic material for ritual drinking vessels; that methers may have been used as early as c. 1300 and that the emergence of the mether form may be associated with the transition from kingship to lordship in Gaelic polities. It is also proposed that the revival in use of some horns c. 1400 may be related to attempts by ruling families to assert their ancestral identities as over-kings. Advisors/Committee Members: FitzPatrick, Elizabeth (advisor).

2. Stenvall, Maja. ”DET ÄR EN SMIDIG LÖSNING” : En kvalitativ undersökning av dryckesspel som en interaktionsritual.

Degree: Sociology, 2017, Umeå University

This thesis is aimed at getting a better understanding of drinking games as a social phenomenon. Data has been collected in form of individual interviews with five students that has been taken part of drinking games. The focus of this study is to understand what function the games and the drinking they involve have for the students. Randal Collins theory of interactional rituals combined with Robert Mertons concept of sociological ambivalence is applied to analyze how the students construct meaning relating to the phenomenon drinking games. The results indicate that the games serve as a gathering point at a social event, and provides a way for participants to interact and socialize that eases the otherwise uncomfortable feeling that can be experienced when meeting new people. The alcohol seems to have a central role in the games as an investment for the players, at the same time as it helps them to get  intoxicated. The games thereby become a convenient solution for the partying students that wants to get drunk and socialize together. But the ritualistic perspective also helps to uncover two secret rules that must be followed to take part of the ritual in the “right” way.

3. Brown, Sandra Lois. Significance, the vessel and the domestic.

Degree: Design Studies, 2004, University of New South Wales

Throughout history, people have made or acquired vessels from which to sip their favourite beverage. In the contemporary domestic setting, households frequently accumulate multiples of the same type of object in numbers that are considerably greater than is necessary and practical for use alone. Of these many objects there are often individual pieces that have special significance for the owner or user. Some are so valued that they may even be removed and set aside because of their perceived importance. The research was initiated by a previous study of tea drinking vessels coupled with a desire, as an object maker and collector, to find out why people have special items that they designate as personally important. The aim was to identify how significance could be recognised in specific objects and whether the notion that a group of features used to gauge such objects could be conveyed into studio based work. The research outcomes are evidenced in a text-based document (which articulates the theoretical and empirical elements of the enquiry) and a body of creative studio work developed in response to aspects of the investigation. The document encompasses two components of the study. The first references material from the fields of museum and cultural studies, pivotal in focusing the enquiry. This contributed to the compilation of a general and speculative inventory of qualities that might pertain to objects deemed “significant”. During these early investigations it became evident that a more in depth and contemporary analysis of significant drinking vessels, their owners and/or users was required. A Survey Questionnaire regarding personal use and special drinking vessels preceded a series of Interviews with a selected group of Australia curators, artists, academics and collectors who discussed and analysed their association with a personally significant drinking vessel. Subsequently, the content of these interviews became central to the focus of the research and outcomes. The research isolates a number of attributes that are commonly identified in objects that, whatever their condition, are deemed “significant”. These describe the maker, usage, ownership, association and historical context. The perceived value or worth of the object for its owner, is recognised as a consequence of significance and declares the object as distinctive. This outcome is clearly validated by the interviews.The studio work develops from the fusion of personal narrative that has been enhanced by findings of the research. In particular, it references the cherished object, most especially those pieces that have been retained despite the ravages of time and use. The resulting work was exhibited as Trace Elements – Marking Time: Significance, the Vessel and the Domestic at Kudos Gallery, Paddington in April 2004.
