‘And we would like to thank’: The role of funding in archaeology

Abstract [en]

To declare that funding matters for research — archaeological orotherwise — would be to state the obvious. Less obvious, andsometimes not even recognized, are the ways in which the source, form, and practices connected to financial support affect and per-haps even more, interact  with research. In this essay, I argue thatif we do not engage with the role of funding practices beyond itsfunction as mere fiscal recourse and enabler, we lose sight of one important aspect of how academia interacts with society and a vitalfactor in knowledge production. In a wider perspective it is alsoa question of maintaining and expanding the range of critique inthe humanities, whose authority above all lies in critical thinking.Taking the discipline of archaeology and the field of archaeological heritage as my point of departure, I will address this topic from acultural perspective and in the context of EU funding, using the European Commission funding programme Raphael as a basisfor the discussion.
