Andrea Vianello (MA, PhD Sheffield) has taught archaeology since 1998 and he is a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of South Florida. He has worked in excavations in Crete, Britain and Italy. His research focus is on Neolithic to Late Bronze Age Mediterranean cultures, especially on exchanges and trade, cultural transmission and socio-economic issues. His monograph on Late Bronze Age Mycenaean and Italic Products has been honoured to be presented by the author to a crowd of archaeologists at the XV World Congress UISPP in Lisbon, September 2006. He has a strong and early interest in the use of digital technologies applied to archaeology, with special concern for Web technologies to disseminate results. He has been a regular contributor to the CSA Newsletter and previously worked for 5 years at the University of Oxford on a national project (Humbul, then Intute) to use Web publications in academic teaching. He is a regular member of the European Association of Archaeologists (EAA) and has presented his work at the EAA's annual meetings since 2001. He has attended and presented his work at numerous international conferences, and has been invited to lecture at the University of Toronto, the University of Durham, the University of South Florida as well as other venues. He is currently involved in a project in Italy involving scientific analyses with pXRF with American colleagues. He is also working towards the publication of two grant-funded researches in Crete. Dr Andrea Vianello has published extensively in academic journals, edited volumes and monographs, though nothing prepared him for the difficulties of writing a dictionary! He has researched and published on exotica, rivers in prehistory, and is working in the Mediterranean with a pXRF and using stable isotope analyses for diet studies.
