Geographically, I focus on the area of former German Eastern Prussia, today divided between Lithuania, Russia and Poland. One focus of my work is the reconstruction of the pre-war state of knowledge of the region based on archival sources. After working on burial grounds of the 1st millennium and interdisciplinary settlement studies on the Viking settlement site of Wiskiauten/Mohovoe for many years, my current focus lies on the investigation of Baltic hillforts, which I date by drillings and 14C-datings.

Keywords: Archival archaeology, settlement archaeology, hillfort research, Kaliningrad Region/Russia, Baltic countries
