Dr Caroline Autret
An assistant professor, Head of the Department Archaeology and History of Art at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi. Before being appointed at Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi, she was teaching in France and was awarded several postdoctoral fellowships in Turkey, Switzerland and France. Dr Caroline Autret is an archaeologist specialised in the Greek and Roman worlds. Relying on ancient maritime transport containers, the amphorae, her research focuses on maritime trading and commercial relationships and hence economic history in the ancient Eastern Mediterranean. Her studies also involve craftsmanship, ancient technology and eating habits in Antiquity. She participated in many international archaeological projects, surveys and excavations especially in Turkey and Cyprus, but she is also currently collaborating on projects in Delos (Greece) and Pompeii (Italy). Moreover, as she is now working in Abu Dhabi, she intends to develop an archaeological research project in the UAE starting next year.
