What future for the life-history approach to prehistoric monuments in the landscape?

2015 (English)In: Landscape biographies: geographical, historical and archaeological perspectives on the production and transmission of landscapes / [ed] Jan Kolen, Rita Hermans & Hans Renes, Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 2015, 1, 167-181 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter I discuss theoretical notions such as the meanings of a monument, the historization of time, temporal collage and the landscape’s multi-temporality in relation to studying the biographies of prehistoric monuments in the landscape. In the second part I draw on texts by Jorge Luis Borges to discuss some of the inherent difficulties of this approach. Implied assumptions of a single and unchanging identity over time of prehistoric monuments in the landscape are problematic. I conclude by suggesting that the life-history approach to monuments and the concept of landscape biographies need to be developed further, and ultimately overcome, as new approaches of landscape research emerge.
