research interests: archaeobotany; environmental archaeology; palaeodiet

Archaeobotany, understood as analysis of fruits and seeds from archaeological context, is my main research skill. I am interested in past human-environment interactions, how people accommodated to their surrounding and how they changed it. I am interested in using archaeobotanical data in broad archaeological, palaeoenvironmental, geographical and palaeoeconomical background.

research interests:
Since 2007 is a researcher at the University of Warsaw. She completed a Ph.D. grant entitled “Finds of Roman coins from the West Balt’s culture circle”. She was engaged in several other projects led by Prof. Aleksander Bursche, i.e. “The Migration Period between the Oder and the Vistula”, “Finds of Roman coins from Poland” or “IMAGMA – Imagines Maiestatis. The barbarian coins, the elites and the birth of Europe” and “Silvers of Antiquity – the use of Roman coins in the Early Middle Ages and Modern Times”. Currently she is realising the project “Die Gräber mit den römischen Münzen aus dem Gräberfeld in ehem. Grebieten (Samland)“ supported by Zentrum für Baltische und Skandinavische Archäologie in Schleswig. Her interests focus on antique numismatic, coin finds, coin in archaeological contexts, late Roman and Early Byzantine solidi imitations, the coinage of Barbarian kingdoms established on the ruins of the Roman Empire. She is also interested in the contacts between the Barbarians and the Roman world especially during the late Roman period and the twilight of the Roman Empire.

Currently, she is working on the archaeological and archival materials from the cemetery of former Grebieten (Sambian Peninsula), which were re-found in the Museum für Vor- and Frühgeschichte in Berlin after the world war II.

research interests: 1. Archeology of Hellenism (but also of classical Greece), Archeology of Rome and Roman Provinces, Early Christian Archeology; Archeology of Late Antiquity (III-VII century); 1.1. I am interested in geographic areas covering the Hellenistic Monarchies, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire as a whole; 1.2. I am particularly interested in monuments of visual arts: ancient mosaics, but also Hellenistic and Roman paintings, and monuments of funerary art in the context of the architecture of private constructions of the Hellenistic and Roman elites (houses, villas, seaside villas, tombs). I treat the artifacts of visual arts as a pretext for a broader understanding of the historical, social, economic, cultural and religious issues of Hellenistic, Roman and late antique societies; 1.3. I use several methods in my researches: interdisciplinary research method, microhistory, and the cognitive method.

4. Discovery of an important historical fact that the founder of Pella / Apamea was not a legendary figure, as previously thought, but a historical figure, namely the former archon eponymus of Athens – Archippus, who held his office from 321 to 320 BC; see the conference announcement from Vienna of the author’s article in English: https://www.academia.edu/44690524.

5. Discovery and explanation of the narrative and complex iconological program of five mythological and allegorical tales in the House of Aion in Cyprus. The mosaic is an anti-Christian polemic and for this purpose it uses numerous rhetorical figures. Most likely it adorned one of the rooms rented by the Neoplatonic society; see author’s articles in English: https://www.academia.edu/5403368 in French: https://www.academia.edu/43058571 ; see articles in the Polish media: https://www.uw.edu.pl/rozwiazanie-zagadki-rzymskiej-mozaiki-z-pafos/?highlight=olszewski ; https://naukawpolsce.pap.pl/aktualnosci/news,83915 ; https://archeologia.com.pl/starozytna-mozaika-z-pafos-byla-krytyka-chrzescijanstwa/ ; in English: https://scienceinpoland.pap.pl/node/84026 ; https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1339647 ; https://en.mogaznews.com/collection/1583263 ; in the French media: http://decouvertes-archeologiques.blogspot.com/2020/10/une-ancienne-mosaique-dans-une-maison.html ; in Italian: https://www.danielemancini-archeologia.it/studi-sul-mosaico-della-casa-di-aion-a-paphos-cipro/ ; in the German media: https://antikewelt.de/2020/09/28/kritik-am-christentum-in-form-eines-mosaiks/ .
