Department of Archaeology and Ancient History

The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology | Lund University


Since spring 2014 I am a researcher and lecturer at the institute. I was a doctoral student at the institute and graduated 2004. Since then I have been working in contacting archaeology, and between 2008 and 2014 I was a senior lecturer at Södertörn University. My interests have varied but one common thread approach archaeology as an environmental field of knowledge; both from a broad humanistic and more strict scientific perspetive. My reserach is built on several scientific realities, and with a strong focus on the endeavors of contemporary societies.

My reserach at the moment focuses on a maritime archaeology; and explores the submerged landscapes of the Early Holocene in the Baltic Sea.
