Adolf Schulten


Adolf Schulten

Adolf Schulten (27 May 1870 – 19 March 1960) was a German historian and archaeologist.

Schulten was born in Elberfeld, Rhine Province, and received a Doctorate in Geology from the University of Bonn (1892). He crossed Italy, Africa and Greece with a pension from the Institute of Archaeology. After obtaining the Chair of Ancient History at the University of Erlangen, he continued his works in Spain with such dedication that today he remains the foreign investigator to whom Spanish archaeology owes most. He excavated the celtiberian city of Numantia and its Roman camps (1905-12); he looked for, although without success, the location of Tartessos (1924); worked in the ruins of Tarraco (1948) and in the localities of Mainake, Munda and Segeda.

Named as Doctor Honoris Causa, by the University of Barcelona, Schulten also received the Cross of Alfonso X "the Wise" (1940). He belonged to the Institute of Archaeology and to the Institute of History "Patria de Módena", and was a correspondent of the Austrian Institute of Archaeology and the Academy of the History of Madrid.

His works, fundamental for archaeological studies, were translated into many languages; they demonstrate that he was as much an artist as a scholar. In their abundant production they emphasize Numantia (1914); "Die Keltiberer und ihre Kriege mit Rom "(1914); "Tartessos" (1924); Viriato; "Sertorius"; "L'amour, l'amour est la véritable clef de l'Histoire"; "Los cántabros y astures y su guerra con Roma" (1943) is Schultens most important monographs on his excavations.
