Abstract [en]

In this contribution to the workshop proceedings it is proposed that the cultural change in the Scandinavian north in the Early Holocene, may be understood as a crisis resulting in an activated relationship to the past. The remains of settlements from the pioneering period around 9000 cal BC found scattered in the barren hills of northern coastal Norway, may in my opinion thus in the early Stone Age have been seen as the sacred times of origins. The argument relates to how culture, reproduced through socialization mainly as embodied habits, in times of dissonance between the lived experience of day-to-day action and its cultural “structure”, surface and thus is made discursive. Relics from the period of “sacred origins” are reused to formulate a new culture bearing narrative. In the argument the profession of archaeology is used as a metaphor for this view of an objectified past. The paper thus is a commentary on the concept of Modernity, here comprehended not only as a unique, recent event in Western Europe but as in as cycles of societal crises resulting in stronger emphasis on “historical reflexion” and objectification.
