Herbert Schutz is Professor Emeritus at Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. During his career he studied and photographed the many extraordinary architectural monuments in Central Europe to present them to his classes in Canada, as well as to foreign students in his courses in German Cultural History at the International Summer Programme while he was Visiting Professor at the University of Freiburg in Germany. He holds the view that throughout history Central Europe represents a cultural region which deserves much greater attention than has been devoted to it. His major publications are: * The Prehistory of Germanic Europe (Yale UP, New Haven and London 1983) * The Romans in Central Europe (Yale UP, New Haven and London 1985) * The Germanic Realms in Central Europe, 400-750 (Lang, New York, Bern, Frankfurt am Main 2000) * Tools, Weapons and Ornaments.
