Introduction of Jesper Vestergaard Jensen

New Research assistant in the Palmyra Portrait Project.

I am a Classical Archaeologist and have taken both my Bachelor and Master’s degrees from Aarhus University. I wrote my Master’s thesis on the Roman comitium and its relation to the present day Romanization debate.

I have furthermore worked as a Student assistant for the Palmyra Portrait Project, where I worked with adding portraits to the database, in situ contexts for funerary portraits as well as making smaller catalogues. My assignments as a Research assistant will, among other things, be to work on the catalogue of the Palmyrene funerary portraits.
