Abstract [en]

LOTTE HEDEAGER. Iron Age myth and materiality: an archaeology of Scandinavia AD 400–1000. xxx+ 286 pages, 93 illustrations. 2011. Abingdon: Routledge; 978-0-415-60602-8 hardback £80; 978-0-203-82971-4 e-book; 978-0-415-60604-2 paperback £24.99.

FRANDS HERSCHEND. The Early Iron Age in South Scandinavia: social order in settlement and landscape (Uppsala University Occasional Papers in Archaeology 46). 450 pages, 124 colour & b&w illustrations. 2009. Uppsala: Uppsala Universitet; 978-91-506-2117-4 hardback.

In this Scandinavian duet, on the earlier and later Iron Age, two distinctive voices can be heard. As Hedeager’s and Herschend’s books are both very comprehensive, I cannot give credit here to all the ideas and conclusions exposed there. Instead, I shall select interpretations which I find either good, or bad or challenging. The authors’ approaches are quite different: while Hedeager is close to the post-processual school, Herschend is . . .  Herschend.
