Archaeological retrospect 8

  • C. J. Becker

In this, the eighth contribution to our archaeological retrospect series, Professor Carl Johan Becker describes the development of Danish archaeology in the last fifty years, how it affected him and how he affected it, since his first excavation in 1932. He retired this year as Professor of Nordic Archaeology in the University of Copenhagen: in this wide-ranging and most informative article he says that a ‘new survey of Danish prehistory… will not be forthcoming’ from him, but we have good reason to believe that he is mistaken.
