Example text

In 1850 it was decided that ethnology and geography should in future jointly constitute section E (Cull 1854). Prichard did not especially like ethnology being placed with the natural sciences, because he considered the discipline more closely allied to history: ethnology is the history of human races, or of the various tribes of men who constitute the population of the world. It comprehends all that can be learned as to their origin and relations to each other. It is distinct from natural history, inasmuch as the object of its investigation is not what is, but what has been.

J. Thomsen was also initially to follow it. THE D EVELOPMENT O F A RCHAEOLOGY, 1806–1816 Copenhagen University’s librarian was a man who enjoyed making extended walking tours round various parts of Denmark. On these tours he took frequent note of antiquities, and by 1805 Rasmus Nyerup was a worried man. Agriculture and road-building were destroying ancient monuments at an unparalleled rate, and the numerous antiquities that were turned up were mostly accorded little attention and were usually dispersed and lost.

This chapter will examine the initial developments, which took place mainly in Copenhagen and culminated in Thomsen’s publication of the artefactual scheme in 1836. However, in contrast to the way these events are often presented in histories of archaeology, the Three Age System did not emerge into a vacuum, and was not initially regarded as reaching further back into the past than ancient history. In order to understand this, we must therefore examine the ancient historical chronology. The Wrst part of the chapter will therefore present the ancient historical chronology that had already been in place for half a century, largely the work of Peter Frederik Suhm.
