    The increasing usage in archaeology of scientific dating techniques such as radiocarbon since the 1950's sometimes makes easy to forget the formidable achievements in the field of relative chronology during the 19th century. Scandinavian scholars were protagonist in developing ingenuous methods for identifying patterns among prehistoric artefacts, organising them according to their physical properties and spatial relations, based on data from the archaeological record and museum collections of Scandinavian countries.This is a well focused, academic book, which starts with a very good (albeit short) conceptual framework, fundamental for the understanding of the following chapters. The work of well known scholars such as Thomsen, Worsaae and Montelius, and many others that greatly contributed to our understanding of human prehistory, is critically analysed, their merits and occasional flaws spotted. This book shows how fundamental concepts such as the three-age system (stone, bronze and iron ages) and typology were gradually constructed and thoroughly refined, culminating in a model that is still used in contemporary archaeology.
