Their main duties will include full-time research in collecting and analysing said data in collaboration with other ANEE members, presenting their research in international conferences and peer-reviewed journals, and contributing to organizing of archaeological fieldwork and workshops. Other tasks related to working in a research community, such as teaching or supervising PhD students, are also involved.
Team 3 “Material Culture and Community Heritage” utilizes a material culture perspective to investigate the dialectics of empire in ancient local communities inhabiting the imperial fringes, and seeks to provide a sustainable future for this heritage through local engagement.
