Klejn L.S. History of archaeological thought (Prospect-abstract)

In print at the St.Petersburg University, in Russian

By Leo S. Klejn


This book is the first comprehensive monograph on the world history of archaeology in Russian.  In Russia and the USSR (and in Russian in general) no world history of archaeology or general history of archaeological thought has ever previously been published, either before or after the Revolution.


Furthermore, there are few such works in the world. When it comes to the history of their discipline, archaeologists tend to be reliant upon just two basic works, namely Glyn Daniel's history of archaeology and Bruce Trigger's history of archaeological thought. The first was published in the middle of the last century, the second in 1989 (with a new edition in 2006). Both are very good, although they both have a number of weaknesses. Both are devoted almost exclusively to prehistoric archaeology at the expense of all else. Moreover the first book is overly reliant upon English and French literature and does not mention Slavic and German works, while the second is written with very broad strokes and does not describe schools and personalities in any detail.


The present work is more substantial and is structured differently. For early phases the development of archaeology is considered by periods, and from the middle of the 19th century by schools.


This work is based on a course of lectures given by the author at the Leningrad-Petersburg University, and subsequently at Vienna University. As distinct from the more customary historiography, this course (and this monograph) is focused not solely on archaeological discoveries and administrative events (although they are touched on), but on the movement and analysis of archaeological thought, the characteristics of the various schools and the biographies of scholars. For the first time all branches of archaeology are united – prehistoric, classical, medieval and so on. Therefore inquiry into problems of art interpretation, and into philological and cultural themes run through the entire course, and the whole movement is considered in the close connection with the history of anthropology.


From Russian archaeology only such phenomena are included as had impact on the archaeology of the leading countries. One should bear in mind that besides this course a separate course of the history of domestic (Russian) archaeology was given in accordance with the Petersburg University program.


The classification of scholars, by schools and traditions, is somewhat different to that conventionally given. So, for example, Bordes is grouped with American taxonomists. Lerois-Gourhan is considered in connection with Neoevolutionism and Contextualism. New designations of teachings are introduced: Transformism as a tradition before Evolutionism (in another meaning than it was usual in France). Diffusionism is treated differently than usual. New teachings are distinguished: Interactionism, the Third Evolutionism, anti-System movement (“archaeological anti-Globalism”). This work of course reflects the individual interpretations of the author, but all these innovations are argued for, in the hope that they will enter scholarly discourse.


There are 44 chapters in the monograph. Aside from the Introduction and Conclusion, 11 chapters are devoted to the creation of archaeology and the formation of its various branches, the next 19 chapters to the schools of the fruitful century – the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th century, while the last 11 chapters are devoted to contemporary schools and trends, including a few so modern as not yet to be in any manuals and as yet having no stable names. Of course the author considers all these schools and trends from the perspective of his own position, but he does not obtrusively impose this position upon the reader.


The length of this work necessitates its publication in two volumes. The work includes no less than 200 illustrations, indices and an expansive bibliography. Although the work is planned as a textbook, all quotations are supported by references, for this is simultaneously a research monograph. The work is intended for students, and all archaeologists and for workers in neighbouring fields (history, sociology, anthropology, ethnography etc.) in Russia and in the countries where Russian is known.
