Just a band crossing the road: On biography, memory and the changing meaning of places

Abstract [en]

This paper deals broadly with biographical approaches to the archaeology of objects and

places, and discusses the parts played by memory and remembrance in creating, maintaining

and changing meaning in connection with places. The concepts of place and place

attachment are briefly reviewed, and the various ways in which places achieve meaning

are discussed. In particular, changes in the meaning of place as a result of specific events

are explored. This is exemplified by a modern place where drastic changes in meaning occurred

as a result of individual events and their remembrance. The identities of places are

discussed, and the possibility of multiple places to be temporarily overlapping yet sharing

the same physical space is explored. These aspects of meaning of place are then applied

to a prehistoric setting, where the occurrence of megaliths on the eastern periphery of the

TRB culture, on the island of Ă–land, is discussed.
