Annelou van Gijn

Annelou van Gijn was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands in 1956 and has studied at Washington State University and the University of Groningen. She obtained her PhD at Leiden University in 1990, where she was appointed assistant professor in prehistory in 1986. In 2000 she became associate professor with the award of an ASPASIA grant. Her specialisation is the technological and functional study of prehistoric artefacts, mainly from the later prehistory of the Netherlands. In 2008 she was appointed Professor by special appointment of Material Culture Studies at the University of Groningen.

Initially she concentrated on flint tools but in the context of recent large scale excavations of wetland sites she has extended her studies to objects made of a variety of raw materials, in order to arrive at a better understanding of past technological systems. During the last years she has also participated in the research project of the Caribbean division of the Faculty of Archaeology. She is co-editor of the book The Prehistory of the Netherlands, in which she wrote several chapters. She is a leader of the team “Skills, processes and tools” of the ESF project EARTH. During 2006/2007 she was a Fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Studies of the Royal Academy of Sciences in Wassenaar.
