Collaboration between SCAS and LAMP

The Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study establishes a collaboration with the interdisciplinary research
programme LAMP – Languages and Myths of Prehistory, funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.

The LAMP research programme is led by former SCAS Fellow Jenny Larsson and is an interdisciplinary
project bringing together scholars from different fields, such as linguistics, archaeology, ancient genomics,
anthropology, and history of religion. The overarching aim of the project is to attempt to correlate the
linguistic and mythological data with the genetic and archaeological map of prehistoric migrations. The LAMP
research group will be partially based at the Swedish Collegium and the first LAMP conference will be held in
the autumn of 2020.
