Crafts & Skills

I work in the field of experimental archaeology for more than 20 years. My interest focus on the technology and function of the prehistoric stone and osseous artefacts, which I study mainly with the use of the traceological method. I am also interested in the prehistoric techniques used to process of different raw materials, like bone and antler softening techniques, Stone Ages plant processing, methods of the birch tar production without the use of pottery and others.

A very important part of my studies is focused on the spatial organisation and function of the Mesolithic camps and mobility of the Mesolithic people. I am the Head Editor of the quarterly newsletter entitled “Experimental Archaeology at Nicolaus Copernicus University. The newsletter”. For already 10 years I run the experimental archaeology and traceology classes at the Nicolaus Copernicus University. I am a tutor and scientific coordinator of the Society for Experimental Prehistoric Archaeology ( Together, we organize the “International Camp of Experimental Archaeology, Toruń 2021 (, which we hope to continue also in the next years. I’m a co-creator of the mini open-air museum, built at the Institute of Archaeology, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń.
