Research

Dr. Verhagen's research focuses on the methodological and theoretical aspects of spatial analysis and modelling in landscape archaeology. He has published widely on archaeological predictive modelling and settlement pattern analysis, and has recently extended his interests to agent-based modelling and network analysis within the context of his research project 'Finding the Limits of the Limes'. This project focused on using simulation modelling to reconstruct and understand the cultural landscape in the Dutch part of the Roman frontier.

He has also been involved in research into the effectiveness of archaeological survey for purposes of archaeological heritage management, and has contributed to Dutch national guidelines in this respect.
