(1888–1957) [Bi]

Swedish archaeologist and scholar with wide interests in European prehistory. A pupil of Oscar Montelius and Professor of Archaeology at Stockholm University, his typological studies of Bronze Age, Iron Age, and migration period metalwork are fundamental to modern interpretation of European chronology and cultural groupings. The results were published in his five‐volume work Bronze‐ zeitliche u. früheisenzeitliche Chronologie (1930 – 35, Stockholm: Kungl Vitterhets och Antikvitets Akademien).
