Crafts & Skills

I'm an archaeologist from Brazil with a keen interest in the early peopling of the Americas. My current research revolves around the Slugs of the Itaparica Tradition, focusing on their production methods and uses. I find flintknapping captivating because it allows me to create experimental research and engage with the community. My passions lie in studying ancient stone tools (Lithic analysis) and depicting them through illustrations. Through this blend of research and creativity, I am dedicated to comprehending and conveying our profound human heritage.
