Das Team kennenlernen
A committee of growers as well as academic staff from networked institutions is in the background of "A Year On The Field".
Meet our team:
After graduating from Heidelberg University (GER), I worked at the Department for History for three years, most recently as an assistant at the chair for medieval history. In 2013 my professional path led me to the Lauresham Laboratory for Experimental Archaeology, which I am still managing today. It is both an archaeological open-air museum focusing on the Early Middle Ages as well as a research facility.
One of my main research interests is the study of medieval agriculture and its relation to the present. Both professionally and personally I am a passionate ox driver and run a very small scale farm with my family as a sideline.
I have the great pleasure to be in charge of the "A Year on the Field" project.
I'm an Archaeologist (M.A.) and focused on Experimental Archaeology and Pre- and Protohistory of Europe. I'm interested in sustainability, environmentalism, degrowth
and how past knowledge helps us improving the present and adapting to current crises or even averting them.
I designed and realised the A Year On The Field homepage and I am managing the project's Social Media.
I studied history, classical archaeology and art history in Frankfurt am Main and now work as a scientific trainee at the Lauresham open-air laboratory for Experimental Archaeology (together with Claus and Lena).
I currently look after the project's website and often edit and upload contributions. Through the project, I have already learned a lot about annual crops, agriculture and sustainable cultivation methods, as well as cultural-historical and archaeological aspects. It is exactly this two-sided approach that I find great about the project and the further networking and outreach to people is an aspiration of mine.
