Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


In recent years the discipline of archeology has increasingly come to realize the political contexts of dealing with the past. This has brought archeology into contact with the neighbouring disciplines of history, anthropology and political science which have a longer disciplinary tradition in dealing with the "politics of memory".
