We would like to invite you to join us – a day immersed in these topics from different perspectives and in the study of the Alvastra pile dwelling research platform. In the attachment you will find a list of speakers. A more detailed programme will be sent out later.

About the platform

Since 2015 a small team of archaeologists at the National Historical Museums in Stockholm has been working on the creation of a research platform, gathering all the resources needed for research into this archaeological site, unique in Sweden. The platform is now finished and ready to be officially launched. To help us with this launching we have collected a group of archaeologists who will give presentations within two fields of study central for the pile dwelling at Alvastra – Stone Age wetlands and Neolithic studies.


We need your registration by 1 November 2019. Please send it to jackie.taffinder@shm.se. Please find enclosed a list of speakers. A programme will be sent out shortly. And please state whether you would like to take part in a dinner at Swedish History Museum on Wednesday evening.
