Personal profile

Curriculum vitae

Dr. Marta Lorenzon (PhD in Archaeology, University of Edinburgh) is an archaeologist and architectural specialist. Her research concentrates on developing an interdisciplinary methodology in the study of ancient architecture, combining geoarchaeology, building archaeology and social anthropology. Since 2005 she has worked in the Mediterranean region, in the Americas, Africa and Asia with a research focus in earthen architecture, knowledge of production, conflict archaeology and identity construction.

Her core expertise lies in the building archaeology, geo-ethnoarchaeology, and community outreach. Currently, Lorenzon's research at ANEE concentrates primarily on the built environment as a key instrument to investigate the process of identity creation in ancient and modern times, the relationship between power and architecture in the first millennium BCE Near East, and the use of computational archaeology in diachronic settlements analysis.
