In the name of “Heritage”: about the speaker

As a research associate at MarEA, and a GIS and remote sensing expert, Dr. Andreou has produced a record of endangered sites in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Arabian Peninsula. She has also developed two separate sub-projects: the first examining the impact of tropical cyclones on coastal archaeological sites in Oman and the second contextualizing maritime archaeology in the broader ecological and humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip. Dr. Andreou’s research examines how traditional perceptions of the ancient environment affect the way we collect archaeological data and produce broader historical narratives. Her most recently funded project establishes a baseline for the study of maritime cultural heritage in the Gaza Strip through a combination of remote sensing and in situ documentation of vulnerable sites dating between the Neolithic and the Iron Age. She is also one of the co-directors of the Kalavasos and Maroni Built Environment Project, an international, interdisciplinary project excavating two Late Bronze Age sites on the island of Cyprus.
