A Nineteenth Century danish archaeological pioneer who developed an early version of seriation based on "closed finds" and applied it as an aid in developing an exhibit of Danish antiquities at the National Museum in Copenhagen. Thomson organized his exhibit on the basis of three ages: the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. His scheme is still used today.
