This paper will explore the impact of geography in the production, consumption and circulation of knowledge. The analysis will be divided into two major subjects: the geographies of production and reception. The questions to be asked are, on the one hand, whether it matters where archaeological knowledge is produced and whether the archaeologists’ locations can influence the content and nature of their scientific production and have an effect on the national and international networks they form. On the other hand, an assessment will be made of the existing conditions and means by which the transmission of knowledge takes place and whether this affects reception. These different approaches will lead us to a discussion about the perception of academic authority and credibility. These issues will be discussed in the context of the relationship between Spanish and British archaeology in the twentieth century
