Thomas Schrøder Daugbjerg started as postdoc, September the 1st 2021, at Aarhus AMS Centre and Centre for Urban Network Evolutions (UrbNet).

The postdoc position belongs to the framework of the Caesar’s Forum Project, which is a Danish-Italian research-based excavation project permitted by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, in collaboration between UrbNet, the Danish Institute in Rome and Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali. The project researches Caesar’s Forum, a monumental public space in the centre of ancient Rome, which was commissioned by Julius Caesar and inaugurated in 46 BCE as a manifestation of his achievements and his strive for a single-ruler regime. However, the site has potential for archaeology in multiple periods: the late bronze age, the republican era, the imperial era and the medieval period.

The newly started postdoc position researches the project’s archaeological finds, especially bones, and works with stable isotope analysis, radiocarbon dating and more.
