The formation of the Association of Terp Research


The Association of Terp Research was founded in 1916, with the purpose of financing the excavations of Van Giffen.

The association started with 150 members. The board included scientists and administrators. Excavations were subsidized through the association. In return, Van Giffen published his results in the Jaarverslagen. This arrangement came to an end in the 1950s.
