The title is taken from a book of Astrid Lindgren, where a subterranean being wonders why two human legs are sticking out of the ceiling of her earth cave. In interdisciplinary projects, one can be confronted with such questions: What is this? Why is it done that way, etc.? Urban archeology in the Nordic countries has always been much about experimenting and working with natural sciences methods, old and new once. In the wake of such collaborative relationships, notorious challenges have arisen about how different scientific practice traditions are explained (or not) and assumed (or not) by the collaborative partners. Often this theme is reduced to a question of weak communication and a lack of insight into cross-disciplinary routinized practice patterns. But there are more than misunderstanding and superficial communication generating this challenge. It is worth thinking of the fact that in the last instance interdisciplinary cooperation is not about what one intends to do, but what one do. So, what do we do?

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.
You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
