Tatiana Valente
Tatiana is an archaeologist and researcher in Classical and Middle Eastern History, graduated at Porto University (Portugal). Her main lines of research are on social, economic and political relationships, with a focus on the ceramic and metal artefacts found on excavations. She is also fascinated by religious and military viewpoints of ancient societies. She believes that History must be understood, and not simply observed through its remnants. Because history tends to repeat itself, knowledge about the past can allow us to better understand our present, and thus prepare us for the future.
