dr. R (Roy) van Beek

Assistant professor

I am an Assistant Professor (tenure track) at the departments of Soil Geography and Landscape (SGL) and Cultural Geography (GEO). My main interests are:

(1) the dynamic relations between human and landscape in prehistory and early history;
(2) interdisciplinary research (especially the interplay between data from the humanities and various sciences);
(3) methodological and theoretical innovation in the field of landscape archaeology and history;
(4) the application of scientific data in heritage management.

My current Vidi-project Home Turf (2017-2022) centers on the long-term development of raised bogs in the Pleistocene parts of the Netherlands and adjacent areas (expansion, exploitation, heritage management).
