In Memoriam Liv Helga Dommasnes

Alas, we have to share sad news:

Liv Helga Dommasnes, professor emerita from University of Bergen, Norway, founding member of “Archaeology and Gender in Europe (AGE)” and AGE co-chair 2008-2014, died on September 13th 2023. An Obituary in commemoration of Liv Helga can be found in The European Archaeologist – Issue 79 winter 2024.

May she rest in peace. Out thoughts are with her family and friends.
