Dr Julia Heeb

Exhibition and research manager (Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin für Forschung und Ausstellungskonzeption)

After completing my AHRC funded MA in experimental archaeology at the University of Exeter in 2006, I knew that I wanted to work further in the field of Experimental Archaeology.  In November 2007, I co-organized the second Experimental Archaeology Conference at Exeter University after receiving an AHRC grant for my PhD at the same institution. After two maternity breaks, I finished my PhD on an experimental approach regarding the shafthole copper axes from southeastern Europe in 2012.  Between 2012 and 2015 I worked freelance based in Berlin, offering research and educational services for museums and translations of academic texts. In March 2015 I started working at the Stiftung Stadtmuseum Berlin in the Archaeological Open-Air Museum "Museumsdorf Düppel" and the archaeological collections. I am responsible for the archaeological collections, general research, exhibitions and experimental archaeology.
