Welcome to the english version of my website!

My research interests are chronologically located it the first millennium A.D., in Roman and Migration Period as well as in Merovingian and Carolingian times, territorially mainly in Middle and Northern Europe. I am interested in gender archaeology, in the archaeology of death and burial and in chronology as well as in the use of statistical methods and databases in archaeology. Currently I am focusing on questions of individual life-worlds and identity, their representation in material culture, and if and how these life-worlds did change during the historical and political turbulent times of Roman and Migration Period in different regions.

Some time ago, I presented the results of my doctoral thesis on "The early-medieval cemetery of Aschheim-Bajuwarenring, district Munich. Studies of chronology, burial rites, age distribution and social structure of a Merovingian local cemetery of Munich Gravel Plain" in a short video called "Vergrabene Geschichten" (translated title: "Buried Stories"). Many thanks to Jens Jensen for the realisation of this project!
