Sensory archaeology in Scandinavia and Finland has developed since the 1990s in the context of phenomenological, empirical, scientific and ontological developments and discussions in European archaeology. This chapter presents these developments, building on examples from various fields of archaeology in this region, including rock art research, archaeoacoustics, mortuary studies and present archaeological practices. An increasing number of studies are directing attention towards the potential intentional manipulation of sensory experiences, and thus contribute to widening our understanding of prehistoric socio-political or ritual strategies. However, in this context, a discussion of what is considered ‘proper’ evidence in archaeological studies ensues.
