Upon his arrival, Breasted found a ready mentor and Petrie had a willing new Pup. In his letter, not surprisingly, Petrie also advised the newlyweds on the cheapest way to travel in Egypt: by boat on the Nile (C. Breasted, 1943: 64). In accordance with Petrie’s advice, and through the help of an Egyptian acquaintance, the Breasteds ordered a dahabeya, or houseboat, on which they would sail down the river from

The case of Oscar Montelius and Italy

my opinion would be to consult and combine a large variety of sources. By doing these things, I believe it is possible to gain a wider understanding of how archaeological knowledge is created, and to learn more about the premises and factors that affected individual scholars’ work at the end of the nineteenth century. Here, I analyse the creation of knowledge by studying the travels of the Montelius couple and the work related to Oscar Montelius’ massive work on Italy, La Civilisation Primitive, which I treat as a great project as well as a publication.

In 1894 Brunn died and Furtwängler was at last called to take up his chair in Munich. But the vilification of his old workplace continued long after Furtwängler had left Berlin for Munich, incidentally with excellent references from both Conze and Kekulé, who no doubt wanted him out of the way (Zazoff, 1983: 214). Things got so bad that the only favourably disposed colleague he had left at the Museum, Curtius, saw himself forced to repeatedly rebuke
