Sample text

There is a neat contrast here between the fate of the Historia and that of Hesiod’s Works and Days, or Lucretius’ On the Nature of the Universe, two mythopoeic discourses that fared rather better when the ThreeAge System was formulated by Thomsen and subsequently accepted by many continental and English antiquaries. My primary interest here is not to present a detailed account of English antiquarianism during these centuries, the outlines of which have already been sketched by Kendrick (1950) and Piggott (1976b, 1976c, 1976d, 1978).

Camden’s connections with the power structure of Tudor England were considerable. For example, Sir Fulke Greville gained him the position of Clarenceaux King at Arms (within the College of Arms) in 1597. It was a congenial post for Camden because the primary business of the College was granting coats of arms to families recently entitled to them and confirming the existing rights of others. Previous members of the College, such as Robert Talbot, had used the position to cultivate antiquarian researches, in his case an attempt to identify the places mentioned in a Roman geography of Britain, the Antonine Itinerary.

The search for the origins of archaeology, just like the search for the origins of any discipline or “idea” (see, for example, Daniel 1964) is a search without end, in the sense that most investigators begin with a fairly clear understanding of what is being sought, and only subsequently find that what were first thought to be stable categories vanish into a morass of interrelatedness. Worse still, the bulk of such searches, even after following the thread of the Great Chain of Being (Lovejoy 1964), come to a halt with the classical Greeks.
