This volume certainly suits well with the ambitions of HEROM, offering a wide perspective on the things, places, and connections that allowed pilgrimage to happen. Although some contributions are more steeped in theory than others, they all leave one with insights into sacred travel, but also wondering about the motives of the sacred traveler. According to the editors, "this journal wishes to focus even more on that one issue that matters most in archaeological terms: people" (p.18). They are well aware that there is a long path ahead of them. HEROM 1 is a good step in the right direction.
