Wehlin, Joakim


MA from Gotland University in 2006. PhD from University of Gothenburg in 2013 with the dissertation Baltic Stone Ships – monuments and meeting places during the Late Bronze Age. After my doctorate, I worked as contract archaeologist and curator at the County museum of Dalarna 2013-2022. Since 2018, I have been a researcher and lecturer at the department of archaeology and ancient history at Uppsala University. My present research focus is on Early Metal Age (2000 – 0 BC) in forested central Scandinavia and how to put research in focus for the digitization of museums.
