Leiden theses | Jason Laffoon

Understanding human migrations requires a long-term perspective.

Following the success of the 2022 Leiden Theses lecture series, the National Museum of Antiquities and the Faculty of Archeology of Leiden University are once again joining forces. Twice a month there is an online lecture by one of our renowned scientists. What drives them in their work? With provocative statements and beautiful stories, they take you into the world of the archaeologist.

Jason Laffoon
It is the turn of Dr. Jason Laffoon, associate professor of Archaeological Sciences at Leiden University. His thesis is: understanding human migrations requires a long-term perspective. This allows us to assess how current trends relate to migration figures dating back to prehistory. Because human migration has been taking place for tens of thousands of years, and perhaps even longer.
