2018.02.02 | Mie Lind

Nikoline Sauer Petersen has a master degree in Classical Archaeology from the University of Copenhagen. Her master thesis explored the Hellenistic transport amphora centres from the Southern Aegean. Through her years of studying, she worked as a student assistant at the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and as a teaching assistant for the first-year students at their educational excavation. Further, she participated in numerous excavations and surveys in Greece, Turkey, and Italy. 

Her PhD-project is part of the project ’Excavation of Julius Caesar’s Forum in Rome’. The research project will focus on the archaic phase (the period between the 8th and 5th centuries BC) of Caesar’s Forum. It seeks to contribute to the understanding of the area of the forum and further to the urban development of the early city centre of Rome.
