2018.02.07 | Mie Lind

Line Egelund has a MA in Classical Archaeology from Aarhus University. Her Master Thesis focused on the The House of the Tesserae (excavated by the Danish German Jerash Northwest Quarter Project) and the continuities and changes in the domestic architecture in the near east from the Roman Period to AD 749.
Line has been part of the Danish-German Jerash Northwest Quarter Project as Trench Master since 2014, and has been part of UrbNet since 2015. Since she finished her MA in June 2017, Line has been employed as a fulltime Research Assistant.

Line’s PhD-project is part of the project Excavation of Julius Caesar’s Forum in Rome. Her project will reinvestigate the long-term development of the use of public spaces in the heart of Rome through analyses of Forum Iulium and the later Imperial Fora (from the Late Roman Republic to the Medieval Period), in order to understand the urban development of the central Rome.
