M.Sc. Ana Grabundzija

As a doctoral fellow in Topoi research group (A-4) Textile Revolution Ana Grabundzija focused on explaining technological aspects of the proposed textile revolution. After completing her thesis on “Archaeological Evidence for Early Wool Processing in South East and Central Europe” she continued her postdoctoral research within the same Topoi project. Her current objectives are reoriented on evaluating the causality of environmental and socio-cultural factors involved in the observed technological adaptations and advancements. The ongoing research includes additional 4th and 3rd millennium BC textile tools from Central Europe. Broadening the recorded spindle-whorl sample, beyond previously investigated Carpathian Basin, aims to increase the potential for detecting eventual dispersal mechanisms of the observed technological changes.

Ana Grabundzija also has participated in the PhD program “Landscape Archaeology and Architecture” (LAA) at Berlin Graduate School of Ancient Studies (BerGSAS).
