Person

Born (1987) and raised in Lund, Sweden. BA 2011; MA 2012; PhD 2018. I have experience from fieldwork and osteological analysis in the Mediterranean and Scandinavian area. In my research I focus on societal change and cultural rules of behavior, and how this can be studied by zooarchaeological analysis, i.e. the study of animal bones. I defended my dissertation titled "Waste management, animals and society: A social zooarchaeological study of Bronze Age Asine" early March 2018.

In my current research project "Sheep O'hoy: The zooarchaeology of sails production in Late Iron Age southern Scandinavia" I focus on the changes in the organisation of wool production and sheep husbandry as demands of wool and wool textiles grew higher during the course of the Late Iron Age. The introduction of the presumably woollen sail serves as a case study in this aspect.
