I'm a PhD student from Ukraine and a member of the living history club "Zastava (Stronghold)". I working on my dissertation about medieval log-boats from the southwestern lands of Kievan Rus' in the 10th-13th centuries.
My main hobbies are experimental archaeology and historical reenacting of the early Middle Ages in the territory of Kievan Rus. My experiments were based on horn and bone and stone processing, primitive woodworking, fire breeding, and primitive tooling experiments.

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.
I am a PhD Student at the University of Western Australia investigating 50,000 years of Aboriginal marine resource use in the northern Carnarvon Bioregion, Western Australia. I have long been interested in experimental archaeology.
I am currently doing my PhD research on flint artefacts from the transitional period of Mesolithic to Neolithic in Belgium by use-wear analysis. For this research, I perform a lot of experiments using flint tools for 'Mesolithic activities', like plant or hide processing.
