Synopsis: Davidovic's study situated in cultural anthropology examines the production and creation of archaeological knowledge among German speaking archaeologists. Using methods of literary analysis, interviews and the participations of conferences and excavations she has studied the explicit as well as implicit ways archaeologists perform their profession create, learn, and teach archaeological facts. Her study will proof necessary for all scholars who admit that scientific research cannot be done without a reflective approach to one's own profession and its cultural background. The various aspects of this creation of knowledge are exemplified by the ways archaeologists (and historians) of prehistory and the Ancient Near East conceptualize ethnicity and deal with the relation of ethnic groups and archaeological groups.
