Chapter Summary

Translation of an archaeological work written in one scientific milieu for it to function on an equal footing in another can produce a number of problems. Besides lexical and semantic issues, the translator is faced with the task of confronting the linguistic manifestations of conceptual divergences between a foreign archaeology and that represented by the target language. There are some fundamental differences in the local traditions of Polish archaeological research and those of the English speaking world. Some of them are self-explanatory but others have required some deliberations about how best to present this text to the English-speaking reader. In general, the tactic adopted has been to make the text as comprehensible as possible to a wider readership rather than using the text to underline the differences in traditions and approaches it unconsciously reveals. Archaeology of Early Medieval Poland was originally written without the intent to have it translated.

Keywords:Andrzej Buko; Early Medieval Ages; foreign archaeology; Polish archaeological research
