DOI: 10.1558/equinox.22690


Aiming at precise stratigraphical control for each artefact Jørgen Troels-Smith (1916-1991) developed an excavation system radically different from the one which had been applied to Danish excavations of cultural layers since the days of 'The Second Kitchen Midden Commission'.
This paper identifies the interdisciplinary approach which characterised Troels-Smith's research into the Neolithisation of Denmark and Switzerland.
