Arkæologi, pseudoarkæologi og sakral topografi

Wienberg, Jes LU (2001) In META: Medeltidsarkeologisk tidskrift p.3-31
Abstract
Is it possible and desirable to separate between science and pseudo science, between archaeology and pseudo archaeology? And should archaeologists igonore, understand or criticise pseudo archaeology? My experiences from the study of four traditions within the field of “sacred topographies” show, that it is rather difficult or even impossible to separate archaeology from pseudo archaeology. In the spirit of Karl R. Popper and his critical rationalism I conclude, that archaeology should welcome all kinds of ideas, which then ought to be seriously examined.
