Esther Trave

I studied Medieval History and Archaeology in the University of Barcelona, where I joined the Medieval and Post-Medieval Archaeology Research Group (GRAMP.-UB) in 2006. I specialized in medieval cooking wares from Catalonia and in the peopling processes in rural areas. From 2010 to 2012 I worked for Sistemes de Gestió de Patrimoni, a private company in Catalonia specialized in Heritage conservation and Archaeological Fieldwork. During this period, I was the supervisor for the Excavation and Restoration works in the Castle of Penyafort (Barcelona). Later on, I got a postdoctoral grant funded by the Catalan Government to work on medieval ceramics and to carry out a research project focused on the production and consumption of medieval greywares from 11th to 15th Centuries, with the Institute of Archaeology being my host institution.
