Felix Kanitz and Balkan archaeology
Vladimir V. Mihajlović

for the Illustrirte Zeitung (Illustrated Newspaper) in Leipzig, a job he would keep almost until the end of his life (Babić, 2001: 173; Timotijević, 2011: 92). Illustrirte Zeitung was the first German illustrated magazine; when Kanitz became its correspondent, it was one of the most prestigious (as well as expensive) illustrated magazines in the German language (Timotijević, 2011: 93). Even after leaving the Viennese academy, Kanitz continued to expand his intellectual horizons, broadening his knowledge about art and related topics in Munich, Dresden and

flocked from all parts of the country to see these WONDERFUL REMAINS.’ (Daily Inter-Ocean, November 26, 1874). Late-nineteenth-century American newspapers like the Daily InterOcean were abuzz with stories of antiquarian discovery. The Memphis Avalanche chronicled remains ‘found on Mrs. Imogene Beaumont’s place, situated on Lake Cormorant, De Soto County, Mississippi’ (New Orleans Times, July 12, 1874), and dozens of similar accounts were published. Collectively, such reports demonstrate that antiquities were a common element of American rural life, engaged with interest

Antonín Salač and the French School at Athens

Czechoslovak independence alongside the Czechoslovak National Council. He was a founder of both the French Institute in Prague, which was, for a time, named for him, and the Institute of Slavic Studies in Paris. When Denis visited Prague in October 1920, the Prague-based newspaper Národní listy reported, ‘it was as if the spirit of [František] Palacký [the aforementioned ‘Father of the Nation’] hovered above us’ (Hnilica, 2009: 33). Unfortunately, the content of Denis’ recommendation is not extant; along with Groh’s, it persists only in a brief note to the French Ministry of

dignitaries and a speech was made by the director of the French School in Athens, Maurice Holleaux, in the absence of Dörpfeld who still directed the German Institute. Obituaries and eulogies were published in Munich newspapers and journals (notably Bissing, 1907; Bulle, 1907; Studniczka, 1907; Sieveking, 1907; Hauser, 1908; Wolters, 1910) and around Europe (e.g. Reinach, 1907a, 1907b; Gardner, 1907; Mach, 1907; Church, 1908). But the Berlin institutions, newspapers and journals were for the most part silent; the Archäologischer Anzeiger published a short official statement

disciplines, and in 1920 Hendrik Leopold (1877–1950) was appointed as an archaeological assistant. Trained as a journalist, Leopold reported archaeological developments and discoveries to the academic community affiliated to the Institute and the general Dutch public via various newspapers (Cools and De Valk, 2004: 55–6).4 But Leopold was a trained archaeologist himself, having been a member of the pioneering excavation team of the Dutch archaeologist Carl Wilhelm Vollgraff (1876–1967) in Argos, Greece at the beginning of the twentieth century. During Easter 1932, at the

Manchester’s bog head

translated into English until 1969. In all likelihood, Manning had seen the 1954 episode of The Peat Bog Murder Mystery (see Chapter 1 ), but despite this, he personally thought Worsley Man was probably somewhere between one hundred and five hundred years old. The coroner, J. J. Rothwell, reported that ‘in law the remains counted as a body’ but given the absence of an obvious cause of death he returned an ‘open verdict’ and the newspaper noted that the remains were likely to be retained ‘as an historical relic’ (cited in Garland 1995 : 104). We owe the knowledge of

(Grace’s Guide 2019 ). During this time, his master was completing the waterworks supply scheme for Manchester, which included cutting through Ashton-under-Lyne. It is possible that in this brief period at least one ‘bog’ head came to light, though there is no record of it in the local newspaper, the Ashton Weekly Reporter, and Stalybridge and Dukenfield Chronicle which did elsewhere (Anon. 1869 : 2), report the find of an Irish bog body at Morville. La Trobe Bateman’s maternal grandfather was a well-known Moravian minister from Ashton-under-Lyne, and the young

curated relics, unsettling corpses and vivid memories for those caught up in such deaths. Chapter 7 brings these ideas to bear upon the ‘cold case’ study of Manchester Museum’s own ‘bog head’: Worsley Man. From first-hand eyewitness accounts and newspaper reports of its discovery, to a discussion of his rather robust conservation, current care and curatorial history, it will present the full biography of this ‘bog head’. This will include results of a new dating programme, non-invasive imaging and forensic examination of the trauma associated with the head. Worsley

organised by UNESCO attracted a great deal of attention at the time, and this interest has continued. The campaign has thus resulted in a number of technical reports, scientific publications, popular presentations, illustrated books, guidebooks, essays, newspaper articles, and films – about the investigations, the monuments, and their rescuing (e.g. Hansen 1961 ; Keating 1962 , 1975 ; MacQuitty 1965 ; Franck 1967 film; Desroches-Noblecourt & Gerster 1968 ; The Salvage of the Abu Simbel Temples 1976; Berg 1978 ; Säve-Söderbergh 1987 ; 1996 ; Kamil 1993 : 98ff

archive. The occurrence of the words “history” (Swedish historia ) and “[cultural] heritage” (Swedish kulturarv ) can thus be followed in the Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet with the aid of a digital archive from the founding of the paper in 1884 until the present (January 2020); Svenska Dagbladet is a morning paper, orientated towards the capital, with a conservative profile. The word “history” appears in all these years with a steadily increasing number of pages; the highest, 4764 pages, occurs in 1994 (Appendix 3). By contrast, the expression “cultural
