Denmark joins ECMD!

We are very happy to announce that our organisation has a new member – “Harja” is an association of archaeology and history enthusiasts which will officially represent Denmark in ECMD. Their name comes from an exceptional find – a comb, dated to around 150 AD, which carries the oldest runic inscription found in Denmark and which probably is the name of the owner of the comb. Harja was founded in 1971 and has since cooperated closely with many museums and associations in Denmark and abroad. Together with Odense By Museum, Harja publishes its own magazine about archaeological events and issues. Highly regarded by Danish archaeologists, Harja is very active and participates in many official archaeological digs, including a recent international project searching for the precise location of the Battle of Grunwald 1410. Harja also organises its own research and field trips, including metal detecting investigations, fully benefiting from the excellent “Danefæ” laws, about which we will write a bit more in a separate article. We are honoured to have such experienced organisation as our member and look forward to work with Harja in furthering the aims of ECMD. You can check their website here:
