The Commission for Westphalian Antiquities was founded in 1897 to research archaeological themes in Westphalia.
The main areas of research are ringforts and other fortifications from the Bronze Age to medieval times, historical routes and – since 2014 – megaliths. The Commission for Westphalian Antiquities seeks to communicate scientific knowledge to the public by pointing out archaeological landmarks. Best examples are the Westphalian Ways of St. James, which have been reconstructed and signposted.
