I like the study of medieval castles and fortifications, not only for the military implications but for their construction methods, renovations and adaptations to new technologies through the eras an the many functions they had in a particularly society during their existence.
I am involved in community archaeological excavation projects as well as experimental archaeology mostly based on the early medieval period. I also organise living history courses in Viking Age metalwork techniques.
I teach Medieval Archaeology and I make research from 1986. I am very interested to experimental, archaeometric and public experience in archaeology.
PhD in medieval archaeology since 2011. 18 years experience in various archaeological fieldwork: necropolises, churches. My present project is to create an archaeopark in the ASTRA Open-Air Museum from Sibiu, Romania.
I have started experimental archaeology since the first year of my PhD degree. Currently, my research is focused on better understanding of impact fractures that could be identified on the stone tools or more specifically, Mousterian points.
