Research grant for James Alan Johnson from the Wenner Green Foundation

James Alan Johnson, postdoc at the Carlsberg-funded project The homeland – in the footsteps of the early Indo-Europeans, has received a research grant from the Wenner Gren Foundation, New York, USA.

The foundation supports international research within archaeology and anthropology, and with the funding James Johnson will be able to carry through excavations in Russia and have the material analysed at laboratories in the UK and in the US. The objective is to enhance our understanding of the material culture characteristic of the Bronze Age pastoral societies on the Eurasian Steppe in the period 2100-900 BC.
