Example text

25 One of the consequences of this period in German history when the past was consciously distorted may be the fact that in the postwar era there has been a reluctance by many contemporary archaeologists to actively engage with theoretical models that aim to reinterpret the past. The conscious rejection of highly theorized approaches to the interpretation of archaeological evidence by modern German Classical archaeologists can therefore be seen as a response to the historical experience of archaeology in that nation.

What mitigates the destruction of archaeological contexts by excavation and ensures the secure interpretation of the artifacts and evidence found is the prompt and accurate publication of the primary excavation data: the excavation reports. These make knowledge available to a wider academic and public audience. Publication is therefore an essential part of the process of modern excavation. As will be discussed later, it would be entirely spurious to claim that any archaeological data is ever truly “objective,” but as much as possible the overtly subjective interpretation of archaeological data should be separated from the reporting of the primary data.

If one were to extend this to the Black Sea, where the Ionian cities had many colonies, then Russian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Georgian, and Ukrainian might also be added to that list. Not only should all excavations be published in full if they are to compensate for the destruction of archaeological deposits that was necessary for their creation, but it is expected that such publications should appear promptly if they are to be of value to the academic community.
