Background and activities

Project manager for the archaeological excavations at Ørland main air base. The project had two excavation seasons, in 2015 and 2016.  Excavation reports will be finished in 2017.

PhD in archaeology from 2014 where I discuss changes in warfare in Central Norway in the period AD c. 100 - c. 900. The discussion is based on studies of weapons from graves, hill forts, boat houses and courtyard sites.

For several years I worked in the cultural heritage management as a manager of excavation projects both for the NTNU Universty Museum in Trondheim and the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo.

I also had stays in Egypt as a field supervisor in excavations of Roman settlements, both in Berenike at the Red Sea coast and in Fayum.
