Biographical / Historical
Professor Robert Ture Olov (1892-1985) was a Swedish archaeologist notable for his excavation work at Đông Sơn between 1935-1939. Though he originally argued a viewpoint for the European origins of Bronze Age culture in Vietnam, he reversed himself in support of Chinese origins after he started excavations at Đông Sơn. Janse is recognized for introducing scholarly rigor into the research of the history and archaeology of Mainland Southeast Asia.
