Jasper de Bruin
Jasper de Bruin (dr.) is assistant professor in Roman Archaeology. In 2017, he completed a PhD in Roman Archaeology, with a thesis that analyses the Roman-period rural community of Cananefates in the western Netherlands. His main research interests focus on the archaeology of the Roman period, especially on communities, exchange mechanisms and the Roman Frontier in the Lower Rhine area.
His publication (2012) on the Roman harbour site in Goedereede has been the completion of a NWO-funded (The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research) project to unlock the meaning and significance of the site. He has also published a number of other papers related to various aspects of the Roman frontier and material culture in the Netherlands. From 2009-2014, Jasper was head of the large scale excavations in Oegstgeest, where an important Early Medieval settlement was excavated. In 2010 he was on the short-list for the nomination for best teacher of Leiden University.
