Arktir Archaeological Time Travel

Custom-made lectures and guiding on archaeology and ancient history

Arktir and PhD Niklas Hillbom offer lectures and guiding on various aspects of the classical Greco-Roman antiquity, as well as on the local history and archaeology of Lund, Scania and parts of Denmark.

Extensive use of various techniques and materials – such as storytelling, reconstructions, eyewitness testimonies, plans and quotations – are combined to paint a vivid picture of the past and to make history come to life.

I am a classical archaeologist and an affiliated researcher at the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History at Lund University.

During the last 15 years I have worked as an advanced archaeological guide on hundreds of classical sites in the Mediterranean countries, as well as presenting custom-made lectures on archaeology and ancient history to companies and organisations in Sweden.

In recent years I have also provided excursions and guiding in Scania and Denmark, such as city walks of medieval Lund, the archaeology of Uppåkra or the history of Bornholm. The length of these excursions has been between a couple of hours and a couple of days. Typical guests include international scholars attending a conference in Lund, departments at Lund University or local companies arranging a kick-off for their employees, or PhD-students arriving in Lund.
