Historical archaeology in eastern Baltic: some trends and problems (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Erki Russow.

The archaeology of the recent past (e.g. post-1500) in the eastern Baltic is a rather young area for material culture researchers. Only in the last 15-20 years has post-medieval archaeology gained some attention among archaeologists in the Baltic States, with the primary focus on military objects and certain types of artefacts. To date, no extensive theoretical discussion has been initiated, and the majority of research has limited connection with lobal historical archaeology. There are various...
