Åke Hyenstrand 1939-2007

I was informed by Martin Rundqvist at Aardvarchaeology that the former head of the archaeological department at Stockholm University Åke Hyenstrand has past away. I believe that Hyenstrand will be remembered foremost for his contributions to Scandinavian and Swedish archaeology during the 70’s and 80’s, especially his works concerning the care of our cultural heritage and his large scale analysis of the results of the national survey of ancient monument in the 70’s.

My thoughts go out to his family and close ones.
