Crossing disciplinary boundaries: On Gutorm Gjessing's archaeology and his conversion to ethnography / Harald G. Johnsen.

Title: Crossing disciplinary boundaries: On Gutorm Gjessing's archaeology and his conversion to ethnography / Harald G. Johnsen.
Author(s): Johnsen, Harald G.
Date: 1997.
In: Acta Borealia. (1997.), Vol. 14(1) (1997)
Abstract: Gjessing was one of most influential investigators in Norwegian archaeology. In works on Arctic Stone Age he proposed alternative to south- north diffusion. Article claims that his works and theories were not entirely nonconformist, but reflected current viewpoints. His ethnography never matched status of his former archaeology. Slate distribution was significant trait, but could be interpreted in different ways - supporting conservatism or adaptability. Gjessing's conversion was influenced by seriousness of current events, and he swung to fashion of diachronic functionalism in enthnology.
