Folke Bergman ( 29 August 1902 - 22 May 1946) was a Swedish explorer and archaeologist.

Biography[edit]

Hans Folke Bergman was born at Klara parish in Stockholm, Sweden. He participated in the 1924–1926 excavations of Stora Torget in Visby. From 1929–1935, he participated in the Sino-Swedish Expedition as a member of the Sino-Swedish Northwest China Scientific Inspection Team led by Sven Hedin (1865-1952). He is best known for his discovery of the Xiaohe Tomb complex in Lop Nur, China during 1934. Another of his finds, the Juyan bamboo strips of the Han dynasty, zh:居延漢簡 (Inner Mongolia, 1930), is known for its transportation from Beiping to Hong Kong, then to the USA, and finally to Taiwan, in a preservation effort during the Sino-Japanese war.
