Invitation til symposie: The URNFELD tradition of the North

Invitation for research symposium 12.01.2022.The urnfield burial tradition of the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age is a well-known archaeological phenomenon in Northern Europe. Thousands of urnfield burials have been excavated during the last century, but research into the phenomenon has unfortunately tended to be nationally focused, ignoring possible shared traits or differences of the burial tradition in neighbouring countries and regions. The symposium will bring together researchers from north-western Europe to present recent research results and begin to compile the first overview of the urnfield burial tradition of the North.

The organizers are:
Helene Agerskov Rose (, Lisbeth Christensen ( og Lilian Matthes (

The symposium will take place at:
Museum Sønderjylland – Arkæologi Haderslev, Dalgade 7, 6100 Haderslev, Denmark.
