Chapter: When does the Past Begin?

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.42586


The chapter introduces the thematic scope, objectives, and the build-up of contents. The text is closely related to my career and scholarly experiences as an archaeologist, but also subjective, revealing personal thoughts on humans, time and things that are mostly left out in scientific texts. Perhaps the traditional frames for scientific publications are too restrictive?
