Lasse van den Dikkenberg, cand. PhD

Member of EXARC since
the Netherlands

Currently doing a PhD at the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University. The PhD is part of the project Putting life into Late Neolithic houses: investigating domestic craft and subsistence activities through experiments and material analyses. The project investigates domestic craft and subsistence activities of the Vlaardingen Culture (3400-2500 BC) in the western Netherlands. My PhD project will focus on flint object biographies. The project is a collaboration with multiple institutions including EXARC and will also deal extensively with experimental archaeology and public outreach. 

When I was 12 I joined the Dutch Youth Association for History. Here I became involved with the Workgroup for Experimental Archaeology (WEA). For years I was the chairman of the Dutch Youth Association for History and where I aimed to teach children and young adults about experimental archaeology and archaeology. For the Workgroup for Experimental Archaeology I have organised summer camps and experiments at Butser Ancient Farm (GB), Archeon (NL), Eindhoven Museum (NL) and AFM Oerlinghausen (DE). Through the years I have gained experience with a wide variety of prehistoric crafts, mainly focussing on the European Iron Age.
