Die Ur- und Frühgeschichtliche Archäologie 1630-1850
[Pre and Early Historical Archeology, 1630–1850]
Aims and Scope
Archeology still tends to be seen as a young science. In this two-volume history of archeology, the author fundamentally reshapes this notion and describes the emergence of archeological methods since antiquity. She also explains the origins of today’s national and sub-disciplinary differences, using examples from pre-history and early history. Volume 2 covers the period from the founding of the first national institutions in 1632 to 1850.
