Product description

The main objective of this book is to discuss the afterlife and reception of burial mounds by studying local interest in them through folklore, but also through disturbance and monument reuse. To this end, the study discusses folklore concerning burial mounds in the two southern Norwegian counties of Agder. These narratives, told by those people who have lived in their vicinity, document a local interest in the monuments, but also question who are the stakeholders and how far the interests of non-archaeologists should be included by archaeologists and in heritage management.
