Annamaria DIANA


Dr Annamaria Diana is an independent researcher currently working for projects in Romania and Ireland. She holds a PhD (2016) and an MSc (2011) in Human Osteoarchaeology from the University of Edinburgh (UK), where she participated in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching from 2011 to 2015. Her past research explored the use of multi-disciplinary data to reconstruct the influence of climate change on past populations, in particular during the Middle Ages, through the integration of archaeological and bioarchaeological datasets with historical, climatological and literary sources for the identification of demographic and paleopathological patterns. She has analysed skeletal assemblages from Medieval Transylvania and Southern Romania, and was involved in the ERC Project 'Persia and its neighbours' for the excavation and study of an Early Medieval frontier community in the Caspian Gates (Georgia). She has produced technical reports on Neolithic and Bronze Age skeletal remains from Romania, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.

As classical archaeologist, she has also explored the movement of people, ideas and objects across the Roman Empire.
