About Sophie Bergerbrant

My PhD, Bronze Age Identity: Costume, Conflict and Contact in Northern Europe 1600-1300 BC (Stockholm University, 2007), dealt with various aspects of the Bronze Age. I approached these topics from many angles (textiles, burials, weapons, and relations between different areas), mainly working with the Middle Bronze Age material in Scandinavia. Textiles and clothing were a particular focus, and they continue to be an important part of my academic work. My interest in connections between Scandinavia and central Europe in the Bronze Age has led to a number of opportunities to study or be a guest researcher at the archaeology departments in Cambridge, Berlin, Aarhus and Copenhagen. As a post-doctoral researcher in the textile division of the project I will be investigating creativity, textiles, craft production and international connections in the Bronze Age. I will be based in Trondheim , where I will work with Lise Bender Jørgensen.
