The beginnings of archaeology in Greater Poland region since 1918

Jakub Linetty

Abstract

The work is devoted to the formation and beginnings of archeology as a modern scientific discipline in Greater Poland before 1918. Its scope covers issues such as archaeological discoveries, excavations, development of literature, theoretical reflection and the culture-creating impact of nascent archeology. The beginnings of archeological interests in the ancient world, in the Middle Ages, and in the early modern period are discussed. However, the most important period here is the nineteenth century, in which archeology shaped as a scientific discipline. This phenomenon was influenced by the growing avalanche archaeological finds, but also by Darwin's theory, the system of three eras and the formation of a long chronology. All these elements enabled the creation of a coherent, scientific vision of the origins of humanity and human prehistory.
