Search for: [Abstract = "Strong continuity is visible in German archaeology between the 1930s and 1940s and the years after 1945. How can this be explained in the face of the total exchange of political structures ideologies and protagonists\? In my opinion, there are two reasons for this phenomenon. Firstly\: the stability of the network of the German archaeology especially and of related German disciplines in general. These networks were strong enough to outlive the dictatorship and the war and most of the protagonists were flexible enough to gain from them. The second reason is that some fields of research were more attractive than others and absorbed money, attention and support. Scientists in these fields became influential in the archaeological network and were supported by their colleagues. They became able to transfer their topics into the frameworks afforded by the new political and scientific systems as a kind of scientific capital. Hillfort research was one of these successful fields and Wilhelm Unverzagt \(1892–1971\) was one of the most influential protagonists of it. This paper will illustrate a strong continuity in East German archaeology before and after 1945 on the basis of his work at the German Academy of Sciences in East Berlin."]
