Dr. Luc Moreau


I studied archaeology at the University in Liège, Belgium, where I received my M.A. in the field of Palaeolithic archaeology. I received my PhD from the University of Tübingen, Germany, in 2009. Upon finishing my PhD I was awarded a six months travel grant by the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) Berlin, to broaden my archaeological horizon with various stays in Europe, the Near & Middle East, and the former Soviet Union (Central Asia, Russia, Ukraine).

From 2009 to 2011, in the framework of a first post-doctoral appointment at the MONREPOS Archaeological Research Centre and Museum for Human Behavioural Evolution, I co-directed new excavations at the major Aurignacian open air site Breitenbach, Germany, to investigate intra-site spatial behaviour and organisation of EUP hunter-gatherers. From 2012 to 2015, I have been PI on a 3-year project funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) to explore lithic assemblage variability in the light of shifts in mobility and land use strategies based on EUP sites from Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Slovenia. 

I was part of the International Organizing Committee of the Eleventh Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (CHAGS 11) held in Vienna in September 2015, and organised a conference session together with Prof. Robert L. Kelly on ‘Detecting shifts in mobility strategies in prehistoric and contemporary forager societies’.

I am currently holding a Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowship at the University of Cambridge.
