Welcome to the personal website of Dr Andrea Vianello, Visiting Research Fellow at the University of South Florida (USF). I am an archaeologist specialised in Aegean and Mediterranean archaeology, including scientific analyses with pXRF and stable isotope analyses on diet and mobility. You can find here some information on my past and current academic activities. Until recently, I was the subject reviewer in archaeology for Intute at the University of Oxford. I am currently involved in field projects in Italy (with prof. Robert H. Tykot, University of South Florida), focusing on prehistoric material evidence, including lithics and metals. A further project is active in England.
I have organized a session at the 2017 EAA annual meeting in Maastricht, "Present identities from the past: providing a meaning to modern communities" and co-organising another one: "Applications using Hand-Held Portable X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometers". The call for papers is OPEN, please submit your proposals.
Many papers and drafts are available on this website, please check the relevant sections, "Conferences" and "Publications". Students and colleagues are welcome to contact me requesting any particular paper not available in the public website. More papers are available in my Researchgate page.
Check out also my page at Amazon. Please note, I do not favour any particular bookshop or market seller. My books can be purchased in most bookshops, online and on the high streets.
I maintain an updated version of the Gazetteer, originally published in Late Bronze Age Mycenaean and Italic Products in the West Mediterranean. A Social and Economic Analysis. The Gazetteer is useful even if you are interested in the topic and have not seen the book yet.
Feel free to look around and if you have any comments contact me.
