Person

M.A. Archaeology (Lund University 2004), B.A. Classical Archaeology (Lund University 2006), Doctoral student in Archaeology since 2015.

My background is in contract archaeology were I’ve worked on excavations and in a consulting position around Sweden and Europe for many years. I’ve also worked as an archaeometallurgical consultant.

My deep interest for metal crafts originated during my student years and has remained strong throughout my professional career. I’ve specifically worked with bloomery iron production, casting and multimetal craftsmanship were different metals and techniques are mixed in the manufacture of complex objects.

My thesis project deals with this complex smithing and its role in urbanization and socioeconomic structures of the late Scandinavian Iron Age. The projects research into multimetal craftsmanship will be supported by spatial survey and analysis of multimetal sites as well as detailed material analysis of metallurgical debris.
