Almut Schülke was a Fellow at Topoi. Here she completed her Post-doc project “Social Space – places in shifting perspectives. An analysis of the Funnel Beaker Culture in Northwest Zealand, Denmark”. This study investigated Early Neolithic society and its use of space, focusing on aspects of social complexity, physical fluidity and shifting perspectives as reflected in archaeological remains. An analysis of megalithic monuments and their spatial context represents the basis for the project.
Schülke has worked with landscape archaeological studies in Germany and Southern Scandinavia, including the development of an approach called “Analysis of the landscape of communication” (“Analyse der Kommunikationslandschaft”). She is part of the landscape research group of the Jelling-Project .
