Marie Louise Stig Sørenson, a reader in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology and a professor at Leiden University, has been honoured for her scientific work by receiving a Rigmur and Carl Holst-Knudsen Award for Scientific Research 2014 from Aarhus University, Denmark.
The award is made without application as a token of respect to a Danish researcher who mainly works or has worked in connection with Aarhus University, and who is involved in scientific work, including the presentation of one or more significant results that hold great promise for future work. It is considered 'one of the oldest and most prestigious prizes in Denmark'.
Sørenson graduated as an archaeologist from Aarhus University in 1981 and has retained her affiliation through involvement with several different research collaborations.
