The 1st of July 2011 I became a doctoral student in Historical Osteology at Lund University. Previously, in more than 20 years, I´ve worked as an archaeologist and osteologist in Rescue archaeology, basically, in central Sweden, but sometimes also on Öland (Skäftekärr, Rosendal, Övra Vannborga), in Lapland and on Iceland (the project “Hólarannsóknin). My colleagues in the profession consider me probably mainly as a zoo-archaeologist, and by some as specialized in Stone Age materials. Therefore, many have been surprised that my thesis will deal with human material from the early modern period. The choice of material and period depends on a combination of coincidence, interest, a desire to put my teeth into a big challenge and to develop both as an osteologist and “researcher”. I have since childhood been interested in both anatomy and history: reading old history books (my parents’) were, in addition to comics with dinosaurs and dancing, some of my favorite pursuits.
