I have always had a passion for history and art, so I decided to bring my two passions together to create 'Arteology'.
I am a retired woodworker. I am also a canoe traveler, a historical reenactor focused on Early Medieval Ireland, and amateur experimental archaeologist currently focused on logboats.
As a teenager, I was spending most of my free time digging near Poitiers and Angouleme in France (did it for over 10 years).
Student: BA & Master in Medieval History ( Université de Poitiers) - Sciences Po IEP Bordeaux
Then adult life in corporate communication.
I am a retired veterinary pathologist with a long-standing interest in sustainable technology and historic agriculture. I have 30 years experience interpreting farming to the public (the picture is from the 1990s).
I am an independent artist working directly with the public, using the traditional trade of silhouettes. I interpret and demonstrate the role of portraiture, and society experiences with portraits, chiefly between 1700-1920 (Modern Era).
Current interests include making and using reproductions of embroidered leather shoes, bone ice skates, and functional leather shoes, as well as demonstrating them, studying their effectiveness, and teaching others about them.
I am a Palaeolithic archaeologist with particular research interests in bone tools and vegetal crafting (including basketry, matting, netting, textiles, etc.).
I am Brazilian, born in the state of Rio de Janeiro. I have a degree in Dance Theory from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and I am currently a master's student in Archaeology at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro - National Museum.
