In the first half of the 20th century, hundreds of burial mounds in the Netherlands have been investigated. Many questions, however, are still unanswered. The barrow landscapes project tackles a number of these questions by re-investigating finds from excavations stored in museums with new methods and techniques.
Prehistoric burial mounds are still ubiquitous in the Northwest European landscape, but not much is known on the landscape they were part of, nor on what preceded them.
The conception and meaning of 'rich' Hallstatt burials in the Low Countries (800-500 BC).
Making sense of the inconspicuous 99% of urnfield graves
Deconstructing stability. Modelling changing environmental conditions and man-land relations in the Pleistocene landscape of Twente (2850 - 12 BC).
The project Deconstructing Stability aims to improve reconstructions of late prehistoric landscapes and predictive models for the purpose of archaeological heritage management.
The use of animal manure enhances the δ15N-value in cereal grains and this δ15N can be measured in charred grain too.
This project aims to reconstruct the spatial organisation of Corded Ware communities during the early 3rd Millennium BC in north-western Europe.
Archaeobotanic research by prof. dr. C. Bakels and students on agriculture.
The social and ideological significance of barrows, 2900-100 BC
The Leiden Beaker Project is a research project about the structure of Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age farming communities. The project is headed by prof. dr. H. Fokkens.
The research programme of the Prehistoric Farming Group (European Prehistory) has several research projects. The largest and longest in terms of continuity is the Maaskant project directed by prof. dr. Harry Fokkens.
Triggered by the excavations in Oss (cemeteries Vorstengraf and Zevenbergen) between 1997 and 2007, Fokkens and Fontijn have started to study Hallstatt ‘elite’ burials. The results of fieldwork have lead to a discussion of Early Hallstatt burials in the Netherlands and in relation to the Hallstatt world in general.
