Jens Jacob Asmussen Worsaae (14 March, 1821 – 15 August, 1885) was a Danish archaeologist, historian and politician, who succeeded Christian Jürgensen Thomsen as director of the National Museum of Denmark and played a key role in the foundation of scientific archaeology. Worsaae was the first to excavate and use stratigraphy to prove C.J. Thomsen's sequence of the Three-age system: Stone, Bronze, Iron. He was also a pioneer in the development of paleobotany through his excavation work in the peat bogs of Jutland. Worsaae was Kultus Minister of Denmark (the cultural and education minister) for Christen Andreas Fonnesbech from 1874 to 1875.
