The Archaeologists is Sweden’s leading consultant on archaeology and cultural environments, with a focus on knowledge building. It’s a part of the government agency National Historical Museums (SHM). The organisation comprises about 100 employees in five different offices in four regions: Hägersten, Uppsala, Linköping, Lund and Mölndal.
The aim is to conduct modern and effective archaeology with high scientific ambitions and rational methods.
In addition to archaeologists, the organisation has a range of other specialists. They focus on areas including geoarchaeology, osteology, archaeobotany, analysis of old maps and method development. The Archaeologists also have experts in digital documentation, battlefield archaeology and archaeological prospecting.
Some examples of archaeological excavations we have been involved in during the years are Birka, Gamla Uppsala, Tanum Motala ström and Tråsättra.
