Archaeologies of Hitler’s Arctic War: Heritage of the Second World War German Military Presence in Finnish Lapland

 

DESCRIPTION

(Material Culture and Modern Conflict) 1st Edition 

by Oula Seitsonen (Author) 

This book discusses the archaeology and heritage of the German military presence in Finnish Lapland during the Second World War, framing this northern, overlooked WWII material legacy from the nearly forgotten Arctic front as ‘dark heritage’ – a concrete reminder of Finns siding with the Nazis, often seen as polluting ‘war junk’ that ruins the ‘pristine natural beauty’ of Lapland’s wilderness. The scholarship herein provides fresh perspectives to contemporary discussions on heritage perception and ownership, indigenous rights, community empowerment, relational ontologies and also the ongoing worldwide refugee crisis.
