Historical Archaeology of NW Europe

Historical Archaeology Research Group of NW Europe (HARG) - UGent

The Historical Archaeology Research Group (HARG) adopts an literal definition of ‘historical archaeology’, including all periods for which we have written historical evidence as well as archaeological data: namely Roman, Medieval, post-Medieval and Modern. The main geographic focus of the group is NW-Europe.

All of the group’s research project involve the integration of different forms of archaeological and historical data; an approach that we believe to be essential on for interpreting material culture within its broader spatial and historical contexts. The research group currently consists of 10 (doctoral) researchers and assistants under supervision of Prof. Wim De Clercq.
