Abstract:The connection between the popularization of prehistory and nationalist politics tarnished archaeology's reputation. This was not a natural outgrowth of earlier practices, however. The nationalist connotations attached to historical interpretation first emerged in the early twentieth century. After the Second World War, archaeology slowly recovered as a respectable science. It has once again become a multifaceted practice that offers hobbyists and professionals a set of material sources for the construction of the prehistoric past of Europe.
