Born 22-04-1946 in Aarhus, Denmark.

My interest in archaeology started at High School, where in 1964 I attended my first excavation.

In November 1966 I began to study archaeology at Aarhus University after compulsive service in the armed forces.

In September 1972 I took my degree, and in December 1973 I became employed at Aarhus University.

In 1977 I became associate professor at Aarhus University, a position that I kept since then.

In May 2006 I retired from the University, and I am now dividing my time between travelling, gardening and archaeology.
After 34 years as a professional, archaeology has now become my hobby.
