County Museum of Halland Landsantikvarien

Landsantikvarien is the authority in the County Museum of Halland responsible for cultural heritage management.

Our task is to protect and develop features of value and importance to the cultural heritage which are to be found around us and in the cultural landscape, in towns and cities and in the countryside. We do so in the firm conviction that a good cultural environment is an important precondition for a good living environment and for the favourable development of society.

Private individuals are also welcome to turn to us with questions concerning matters such as building conservation and archaeology.

Landsantikvarien consists of two units. In the archaeological unit we work with investigations of ancient monuments and cultural landscapes from the Ice Age down to the present day. In the building conservation unit we naturally work with the care of buildings, but also with a great many other matters concerning planning and building. Our successful work with building conservation in Halland, particularly through the Halland model, has led to a number of international assignments and commitments. We have therefore recently set up an international department to work parallel to the Landsantikvarien.
