I graduated in Cultural Heritage Management with a thesis on Anthropology in 2011. I published two articles with EXARC (2013-2 and 2018-3) and a book published in 2018 ("I guerrieri Piceni").
Mike became involved with experimental archaeology while undertaking a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology at Washington College in 2013. Part of this coursework included primitive skills training in basic knapping, hide tanning, and prehistoric clothing manufacture.
I started working in the experimental field while still in university. Mostly I do reconstructions of iron objects and medieval shoes. These days I run the museums forge of the archaeological open-air museum "Bajuwarenhof Kirchheim", where I also present other crafts to the public.
I recently graduated from University of Glasgow with a Master's in Celtic and Viking Archaeology. For my dissertation I used GIS to determine the relation berween Viking Age sites with ironwoking evidence and necessary resources.
I am interested in Celtic and Roman times since 2002.
Also I work unsalaried for the local archaeology authority at the Roman Vicus Eisenberg (Palatina).
I graduated from the University of York in 1994 with a BA in Archaeology and started making replica Viking Age artefacts in 1999, while working at the Jorvik Viking Centre.
I begin working in archaeology in 1985, excavating and experimental archaeological reconstruction of a medieval village at Cosmeston, Wales, UK. Since then extensive experience in field Archaeology and research, with concentration on late Roman and Migration Period material culture studies.
As a PhD student at the University of Liverpool, I attended EXARC 2017 in Leiden where I presented a poster on my current experimental research. The project aims to determine the mould materials used for casting Roman silver flans during the late third century.
I am PhD student of Eurasian research department, South Ural State University (Chelyabinsk, Russia), Director of experimental archaeology centre “Archaeos” (Chelyabinsk, Russia) and Member of the Archaeological Foundation Board “Arkaim” (Russia).
