Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology

PAN project awarded for 1.862 million euro

9 March 2016

NWO research grant for Nico Roymans and Stijn Heeren


Many metal antiquities are found by citizens, searching arable lands and construction sites with metal-detectors. These antiquities are very valuable for professional archaeologists but they rarely find their way to them.

The Portable Antiquities of the Netherlands (PAN) Project will be focusing on creating an online database and making it available to scientists, heritage experts and urban planners. The Netherlands Institute for Scientific Research (NWO) has granted 1.862 million euros for this project.
