More information about Richard Jansen

Richard Jansen (Zevenhuizen, 1969) is lecturer of European Prehistory. He studied prehistoric and Caribbean archaeology at Leiden University. His MA thesis concerned the analysis and interpretation of two Iron Age settlements from the Maaskant region (Noord-Brabant, southern-Netherlands).

Jansen was appointed in 1997 as researcher within the Maaskant project, one of the most extensive and longest running archaeological projects in the Netherlands, with the excavations at Oss at its centre. About 60 ha have been excavated in this region so far, giving a perspective on the origin and development of the cultural landscape, including settlement, burial and ritual practices, from 2500 BC till 250 AD. Since 1997 he coordinates and supervises (annual) fieldwork within the (broader) Maaskant area with students from Leiden University and abroad. He currently lectures several BA courses in Archaeology of Northwestern-Europe.

In 2010 he initiated the NWO-funded Odyssee-research project Oss-Mikkeldonk & -Mettegeupel: de dynamiek van het laatprehistorische en inheems-Romeinse cultuurlandschap. In 2012 also his project Uniformiteit of pluriformiteit? De inheems-Romeinse grafvelden van Oss-Ussen, Mierlo-Hout-Snippenscheut en Geleen-Janskamperveld was granted within the Odyssee-research project. Since 2015 he participates within the Oogst voor Malta-project Locatiekeuze en bewoningsdynamiek in de late prehistorie, Romeinse tijd en middeleeuwen in oostelijk Noord-Brabant. His PhD research focuses on the long term development of farmstead and settlement within the Iron Age and (Early) Roman period rural landscape of (north)east - Noord-Brabant. The main focus of this research is the analysis of the large-scale excavations of Oss-Horzak.

Part-time he also works as archaeologist of the municipality of Oss.
