With an Ucranian statue of Engels, in Manchester

Hi! I am Jaime Almansa Sánchez, a public archaeologist from Spain…

This is my personal web site, where you will be able to find what I do since I became a doctor (in Archaeology). It is mainly in Spanish (well, all besides this bit), so here I will basically tell you a little bit about myself and will share those things you can actually read.

I was born in 1983, in Madrid, although I always felt I belonged to my village. El Cabaco is a tiny village in Salamanca, in one of the most beautiful areas of Spain. Really, visit it! There, I expended most of my childhood, besides school in Madrid. I used to say I went to school in Madrid instead of saying I went to the village for holidays. Guess that explains it a bit. Anyway, I did my degree in History from 2001 to 2006 (we had 5 years Licenciaturas back then) and started my PhD right after. In 2007 I went to London and stayed for an MA in Public Archaeology at UCL. By 2009 I did not get the scholarship to continue with my PhD in the last chance of the call I wanted, so in January 2010 I became a businessman. JAS Arqueología has been most of my life ever since. I started the company to pay for my PhD and ended up devoting most of my time to do stuff there. And I did a lot. But soon we got a reminder we had to finish the thesis, and I had to actually rush to do it. I finished it in August 2016, and defended it the 15th of March, 2017. That summer I got a postdoctoral contract at Incipit, CSIC and right now I just came back from abroad (London, Athens and a bit everywhere) and after finishing my contract in the Spring of 2021, I tried to catch up with things for the little bit I was unemployed. In November I joined again Incipit, CSIC to manage a new network of archaeology.

For the moment, if you are interested in my work, have a look at my Academia.edu page, where you can find most of my academic production. if it is not there and you want it, just ask. I’m happy to share and always answer.

I am also editor, together with Elena Papagiannopoulou, of AP: Online Journal in Public Archaeology.

And you can find me in many international events

If you need anything else, just tell me. For the moment, I invite you to follow my current project: #pubarchMED.

And also, the network of archaeology I manage at CSIC: ArchaeologyHub.CSIC
