I am a PhD student in archaeology and my research deals with small-scale mobility and spatial organisation at prehistoric settlements.
Philip Jerand is a PhD student at the Department of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Umeå University, Sweden. Jerand has a B.A. in archaeology and a M.A. in environmental archaeology, both obtained from Umeå University. He has worked extensively with contract archaeology at museums and companies in northern Sweden, northernmost Norway and along the Scandinavian west coast. He has also worked with matters of cultural heritage at administrative agencies on regional and national levels. Jerand's research is interdisciplinary and deals with mobility and spatial organisation at different scales by using archaeological evidence, environmental proxies and ethnographic accounts. His academic training is primarily in chemical and physical analyses on soils and sediments and he is particularly interested in Sámi archaeology and early reindeer herding.Close
