I have been working for several years as an archaeologist within the heritage sector. While doing contract archaeology employed by a local museum in south Sweden I started to develop a critical eye to public archaeology and the practice of heritage outreach. Since then I have been engaged in several research projects, working with stakeholders from a wide range of perspectives. Like all archaeologists I sometimes get the question on what time period in human history I find most interesting. Throughout my working life the answer has been the present and the future. Since 2011 I am working in Kalmar at Linnaeus University.
