Carl Schuchhardt (1858-1943): A Review of Ancient Europe

Published: 2010-03-24 | DOI: 10.54799/JLJE2028


This paper is devoted to an analysis of Carl Schuchhardt’s Alteuropa which probably is his most important book. Instead of concentrating on details of content, the contribution focuses on comparing its four editions published between 1919 and 1941 and their basic layout. On this basis the narrative style of Schuchhardt’s archaeological synthesis is being characterized. Furthermore, the paper tries to evaluate Schuchhardt as ›archaeological narrator‹ against the background of Jörn Rüsen’s categorization of historical narration. In conclusion, some general reflections on 'the archaeologist as author' are being presented.
