Welcome to the personal website of Dr Andrea Vianello, archaeologist specialised in Aegean and Mediterranean archaeology. You can find here some information on my past and current academic activities, and a few papers. I was the subject reviewer in archaeology for Intute at the University of Oxford. I am currently involved in a field project in Sicily (hint: see photo), focusing on prehistoric material evidence (museum based work). It is a multi-disciplinary collaborative research project. Occasional updates can be found on the blog, the first publications are coming: first paper and latest paper on lithics.
I am co-organising a new session on science and archaeology, to be held at the EAA in Glasgow, September 2015. Here are the abstract and leaflet (Word file).
Many papers are available in this website, please check the Conferences (for unpublished) and Publications (for published) papers. Students and colleagues are welcome to contact me requesting any particular paper not available in the public website.
BREAKING NEWS: Rivers in prehistory, my latest book, is in press. Further information can be found here.
You can find my two most recent (2012 and 2013) presentations at the EAA in the conferences section. The 2012 presentation is entitled Funerary Consumption and Symbolism of Exotica in Mycenaean Greece. The 2013 one is entitled Entangled Aegean-type wares.
Check out my page at Amazon. Please note, I do not favour any particular bookshop or market seller. My works can be purchased in most bookshops, online and on the high streets.
I maintain an updated version of the Gazetteer, originally published in Late Bronze Age Mycenaean and Italic Products in the West Mediterranean. A Social and Economic Analysis. The Gazetteer is useful even if you are interested in the topic and have not seen the book yet.
Feel free to look around and if you have any comments contact me.
