Rogier Kalkers has studied Mediterranean Archaeology at the University of Amsterdam and at the Roma Tre University, and did his Masters in Landscape Archaeology at the VU University in Amsterdam. In his thesis, he explored the effects of different research traditions on the conceptualization of archaeological landscapes on the basis of a case study in Molise, Central/Southern Italy.
Rogier has participated in a large number of fieldwork projects in Italy, Portugal, Greece and the Netherlands. He has worked as a research staff member in the Landscapes of Early Roman Colonization project at Leiden University, where he was responsible for the management and analysis of field and find data, the organisation and execution of fieldwork campaigns, and managing the project’s data repository. Currently, Rogier is involved in a new landscape archaeological project in Northern Alentejo (Portugal), which is a collaboration between Leiden University and the University of Évora and he is co-organizing the ongoing Leiden University field schools in Molise (Italy).
