Tasks performed

My main tasks include excavations within the Museum of Cultural History administrative area, and producing the reports from these excavations. I mostly work with Iron Age settlements, graves, cultivation and production, but occasionally do Bronze Age and Medieval projects as well.

My research in recent years have focussed on graves, in particular the reopening of graves, manipulation and/or removal of grave goods and grave reuse, in Norway and Turkey. Previously I have studied coarse ware pottery in Central Italy, and water-related infrastructure in the Mediterranean.

Background

Cand.philol. (MA) in Archaeology from the University of Oslo, 2006, on coarse ware pottery from the Latin settlement of Ficana (Lazio), Italy.

Cand.mag. (BA) including 1,5 year units in Archaeology and English, 1 year units in History and Latin, 0,5 year units in Ancient Greek and Project work, 1/3 semester units in Italian language, literature and history/geography.
