The EXARC Secretariat consists of four people who are appointed and supervised by the EXARC Board. Next to it EXARC has several volunteers within the Editorial Board of the Journal.
EXARC Director & EXARC Journal Executive Editor: Dr Roeland Paardekooper (NL)
Together with Martin Schmidt and Tomas Johansson, I sat down years ago to start EXARC. By now, I oversee the daily activities, keep contact with the EXARC members and the EXARC Board as well as with affiliate organisations, interest groups on experimental archaeology or initiatives for a new archaeological open-air museum. I answer questions, follow up on requests for information and start cooperation projects where possible. Last but not least, I advice EXARC members at request and help with keeping the EXARC JOURNAL and website up to date. My editing experience goes back to 1986, when I started editing and producing a magazine for our local history club. My main experience as editor was 9 years, for the magazine of the Dutch Association for Archaeology and Education. For EXARC Journal, I acquire articles from different corners of Europe and beyond. I am also the linking pin between the editorial board and the board of the association EXARC.
EXARC Design & Administration: Magdalena Zielińska BA (NL)
I have been involved with EXARC from its beginnings. My responsibilities have grown since then, from making a small website end of 2002 to a few more websites over the years and all graphic design products, including three corporate identities. From 2011 on, I am also responsible for designing the EXARC JOURNAL on line and the EXARC JOURNAL Digest (printed version). Besides this, I work on the daily EXARC administration incl bookeeping and the secretarial work.
EXARC JOURNAL Editor-in-Chief: Mgr J. Katerina Dvoráková (UK)
I became involved with the original Czech REA from its second number in 2001 and was at the foundation of EuroREA, now the EXARC JOURNAL. I overview the overall preparation of both the on-line Journal and printed Digest. Among other tasks this includes answering questions from contributors, co-ordinating the work of our editors, keeping in contact with reviewers, sending out proofs and discussing issues with our designer. I also translate texts on archaeology and related subjects from Czech to English, both for the EXARC Journal and as a freelance translator and offer language revision and text formatting.
EXARC Digital Collections Manager: Dr Jodi Reeves Eyre (USA)
I have worked with EXARC since 2010 and currently manage the EXARC Experimental Archaeology Collection. I have a PhD in archaeology from the University of Exeter and was a CLIR/DLF Fellow in Data Curation for the Sciences and Social Sciences at Arizona State University from 2013 to 2015. For the past five years, I have focused on the preservation of cultural heritage by leading digital curation projects, consulting on digitization programs, and developing curricula for students and professionals. In addition to undertaking research relevant to the museum, library, and archival professions, I have conducted ethnographic research with other archaeologists, woven on models of ancient Greek looms, and painted people blue.
