Quentin Bourgeois, (dr.) is assistant professor in European prehistory. His main interests are funerary archaeology combined with network analysis and GIS approaches in later prehistory. He is currently a member of de Jonge Akademie.

Quentin obtained his PhD in 2013 (cum Laude) at Leiden University within the research project Ancestral Mounds. His PhD was awarded the W.A. van Es-award for Dutch Archaeology (2014). In his research he dealt with groups of barrows and their position within the landscape. Through extensive GIS-analyses he  attempted to shed some light on the choice of location for the placement of the burial monument. Why were they placed there, what could be seen from that location, and how did this develop through time? These findings were compared to data on the vegetation surrounding these barrows and the practices surrounding the burial itself. His research sheds more light on the choices behind the positioning of these burial monuments. The project received the SIKB Prize for best archaeological research team in 2009 and a book resulting from it was received by Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands in 2012. 

In 2013 Quentin obtained a Rubicon-grant from NWO for his project “Walking along Ancestral Lines”. He investigated the emergence of long barrow alignments throughout Europe in the 3rd Millennium BC as part of the research group of prof. Helle Vandkilde and Mads Holst at Aarhus University in Denmark. In 2015 he was granted a VENI-project entitled “Networked Landscapes”, where he aims to investigate the landscape organisation of the so-called Corded Ware groups using GIS and network analyses. In 2016 he started a fieldwork project on the Epe-Niersen barrow alignment, one of the longest and best preserved prehistoric barrow alignments in the Netherlands. In collaboration with the municipality of Epe and the National Museum of Antiquities we aim to increase our knowledge of this site with extensive surveys and targeted excavations as well as to disseminate the scientific results of the project to the wider public. In 2017 Quentin became a member of The Young Academy or de Jonge Akademie, established by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) in 2005.
