Abstract: In this short lecture, I shall try to demonstrate some main characteristics of Ribe’s archaeology within its whole period from the early 18th century and up towards the present. At the end, this will take the form of a walk down memory lane in a somewhat personal way, but that aside, I also hope to be able to point out some main characteristics which are to be discussed within the following three main points:

1.     Inspiration from home and abroad. Methods, skills and techniques which were introduced and used – or not

2.     Questions raised and solved – and why not

3.     Down memory lane
