The Erik Westerby Prize to Professor Kristian Kristiansen

News: May 10, 2017

Professor Kristian Kristiansen has been awarded the Erik Westerby Prize, Denmark’s largest archaeology prize. The prize will be presented at a ceremony at the National Museum in Copenhagen on May 10th.

The Erik Westerby Prize is Denmark's largest archaeology prize. It is named after Erik Westerby who was a lawyer and skillful amateur archaeologist and, among other things, discovered the so called Brommekulturen, one of Denmark's oldest settlements. He lived 1901-1981 and after his death, his family established a great prize in his honor, which has been awarded since 1983.

− It feels really good to get this recognition. I was surprised because I did not think I could get it as long as I live and work in Sweden. However, in recent years, I have had a lot of cooperation with Danish researchers in several major projects, says Kristian Kristiansen, professor in archaeology and director of Centre for Critical heritage Studies.
