My research interest is the Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age in Northern and Central Europe. The focus of my research in Roots addresses fortified settlements that indicate conflict, but also measures against conflict such as possible territorialisation. Linear structures, such as rows of palisades or cooking stone pits, can also be interpreted as evidence of conflict avoidance strategies. Another aspect of investigation is the transfer of knowledge and the routes it took in the Bronze Age, which can be demonstrated, for example, by chains of burial mounds. Do technical innovations or ideological changes follow these routes? 

Keywords: Path systems, fortifications, linear systems
