Pågående forskning

Using lime and mortar production for Stavanger Cathedral (1125 AD) as a case, the project explores past and present epistemologies and the ways in which Western norms and a loss of practical knowledge influences (1) our interpretation of past societies and (2) our ability to take care of traditional buildings in the present.

The project stresses the importance of cross-disciplinary research and bridging the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge. Has the down-classing of practical knowledge in modern times caused a distancing between humans and materiality which could be harmful for traditional buildings? How did they value the stonemason's knowledge in Medieval times? And are we trying to interpret past crafting traditions through binoculars of a modern mentality without meaning to?

Inspired by Maikel Kuijpers' sensory upgrade to the chaîne-opératorie, I will try to answer these questions though a combination of experimental archaeology, ANT, phenomenology and scientific examination, in comparison to archaeological and textual evidence.
