I am a research assistant at the German Archaeological Institute. Currently I am writing my PhD on “Ancient Near Eastern Amulets“ at Freie Universität Berlin (DE). Since several years I am giving workshops on gruitbeer and mead production at Museumsdorf Düppel.
I am researcher in Medieval Archaeology from 1986 and I teach also (from 1996) Methodology of archaeology research. I'm very interested to experimental, archaeometric and public experience in archaeology.
I’ve been possessed by the classical world since Latin class, but only got involved with it decades later. As a living history member of Legio XX in the Washington DC area, we have shifted our focus to education and interaction with students and the public.
Dr. in Quaternary and Prehistory with European mention in the University Rovira i Virgili of Tarragona (Spain) in collaboration with the University of Ferrara (Italy).
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.
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.
