Archaeological project director
Peter Stokkel is temporary head of the excavation and research team and archeological project director of the archaeological department of the municipality of the Hague.
In 2003 he received his master's degree in archaeology from Leiden University. He immediately started working via Vriens Archeo Flex, an employment agency, at commercial archaeological companies like ARCbv and ACVUhbs. In 2005 he was employed by ARC bv as a field archaeologist but within the first year he led his own excavations. In this time he excavated and reported archaeological remains all over the Netherlands and in every Holocene archaeological period.
In 2009 he became an archaeological project director of the municipality of the Hague. Although he remained responsible for some of the actual excavations, he was also involved in archaeological policy and the numerous events to inform the people of the Hague of the archaeological wealth the city has. In 2017 he became temporary head of the excavation and research team of the archaeological department

Six years later he has returned to academia as a PhD researcher in Digital Archaeology in the Data Science Research Programme at the Faculty of Archaeology and the Leiden Centre of Data Science.
