About

Hi to all of you who come and read this!

I am an archaeologist and osteoarchaeologist, interested in the anthropology of the body- the ethics and history of body research and display.  I am also interested in Archaeological Method & Theory and public archaeology. Past projects have been focused on the early history of Romanian (physical) anthropology and on the analysis of the role of Medieval king’s bodies in contemporary scientific narratives. My profile can be found on Academia.edu page.

You will find all these topics tackled on the blog, along some related to the fate of the Humanities in today’s world.

The blog also hosted guest-posts, gathered around the topic of: HUMANITIES TODAY- a series of provocative and interesting posts from people within the academia or the educational sector
