DOI: 10.1558/equinox.22688


During World War II numerous prehistoric artefacts and sites were unearthed during peat extraction in Danish bogs. The staff of the department of Prehistory at the National Museum of Denmark was busy with salvaging such artefacts and assemblages all over Denmark. The Keeper Carl Johan Becker (1915-2001) had responsibility for several of the major settlement excavations. He also undertook much of the cataloguing of finds collected by other staff members - excluding the finds from Store ├ůmose. This chapter is a republication of part of Becker's doctoral thesis.
