The department of historical studies at the University of Gothenburg comprises archaeology, ancient history and history. It provides a stimulating interdisciplinary framework for the project. The deputy head of the department and the principal investigator, Kristian Kristiansen, has developed an active international research network. Our research partners are right now the Danish national research foundation’s Centre for textile research, and the Centre for GeoGenetics, both at the University of Copenhagen.
There is also an active international PhD environment, as well as a stimulating research environment of post doc researchers within the project.
