Bornholm Archaeological Research Center

Archaeology of the Baltic Region


Bornholm Archaeological Research Center (BARC) is an organization and a branch of Bornholm Museum in Denmark. We are dedicated to the creation, dissemination, and conservation of archaeological knowledge and heritage. In BARC we seek to change the social context in which archaeological research and training is conducted through the promotion of interdisciplinary research and global collaborations.
BARC is home to the departmental Archaeology Program of several national and international universities. We provide a forum for innovative faculty research, graduate education, and public programs in order to make impact on academic, local and global communities. Our faculty, research associates and students are involved in ongoing field projects that include the development of local archaeological site museums, international student exchanges, participation of national and international scholars, and partnerships with local communities across the globe.
BARC aims to be the forefront of archaeological research, education, conservation and publication. We also do our best to become an active contributor to interdisciplinary research in the Baltic Region. We envision that through this type of archaeological practice we will advance the development of a truly global archaeology.
