‘I Vow to Thee, My Country’ ‘ The Historical Archaeology of Nationalism and National Identity in Trans-Atlantic Context
Author(s): Alasdair Brooks
This paper is designed as an introduction to the symposium ‘Enfants de la patrie’ on the historical archaeology of national identity and nationalism. The North American and European experiences of nationalism from the 17th century onwards are compared and contrasted with a view towards not just contextualising similarities and differences in the conceptualisation of national identity, but the different archaeological approaches to the subject. As with the session as a whole, the emphasis is on historical archaeology rather than prehistoric, classical or medieval archaeology, though work from the latter periods is inevitably touched upon to more broadly understand the contribution of our own period to the study of nationalism and national identity.
