Stephanie Aulsebrook

Specialist in the metalwork of the Late Bronze Age Greek mainland, an area that, at the time, hosted a group of polities known collectively as the Mycenaeans. I studied for my PhD, which was on the use of metal vessels by Mycenaean elites within political strategies to gain and maintain their power, at the University of Cambridge. Subsequently I worked as a member of the Well Built Mycenae team to publish old excavation data and held a fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities, which is affiliated with the University of Edinburgh. I joined the University of Warsaw in 2019 to pursue a project entitled ‘Forging Society at Late Bronze Age Mycenae: the Relationships between People and Metals’ (funded by the NCN), which I hope will shed more light on the role of metal across the entire spectrum of this community.
