Picture showing Peter Dekker standing behind his desk in his office. He is surrounded by his collection of arms and armor, and shelves filled with books to carry out his research.
Peter Dekker is an example of how you can be a scholar outside the walls of universities, that you do not need all the titles that the academic community often makes us believe are needed to be taken seriously. He is asked for his advice by institutes such as The Met in New York and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. No questions, then, that this man is taken seriously.
