Digital Humanist - that is how you can best describe me. With a background in archaeology and an ever growing interest in IT, I have become fascinated by the intersection between Humanities and the digital world. In 2013 I wrote this post about what Digital Humanities is to me. 

I did my BA in Prehistoric Archaeology (Aarhus University), supplemented with courses in GIS and Java programming (University of Leicester). Followed up with an MSc in Archaeological Computing (University of Southampton), where I worked on building webservices for heritage data, and a DPhil in Ancient History (University of Oxford), where I experimented with Decision Support Systems and other digital tools for aiding scholars reading ancient documents, such as Latin documents from Vindolanda.

As a natural extention of my interest in open heritage data I am now researching ways to understand and include amateurs, crafts-people, do-it-yourself culture and other community members in participating in heritage. 

I am very interested in hearing from researchers, students and other interested parties who take an interest in these subjects.
