Dr. Piet van de Velde

Pieter van de Velde (1940). After nine years in the merchant navy he studied cultural anthropology and prehistory at Leiden University, and did a PhD in Social Sciences at that university in 1980.

His thesis was a sociological study of Bandkeramik community structures as preserved in cemetery and settlement remains. Conservationist archaeology in Germany, field archaeology in Java (Indonesia) and Sardinia (Italy) and a lectureship at Leiden University served to keep up his interest in the early neolithic way of doing. After his retirement (2001) he continued working on the LBK, of which the present volume is the most recent witness.
