Biography
 

I am a researcher in archaeo-geophysics at the University of Valencia (UV) since August 2023 and an affiliated researcher at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). With a background in archaeology (UV, 1993-1998) and ~7 years in rescue archaeology (Spain and UK), I developed my engagement with geophysical prospection via an MSc (Bradford University, England, 2007-2008) and a PhD (University of Glasgow, Scotland, 2009-2013). I have held research and consultancy positions in Norway (NTNU, Trondheim, 2017-2023), Austria (Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization-CTBTO CTBTO, Vienna, 2015-16), and Greece (FORTH-IMS, Rethymno-Crete, 2013-15). 

My research portfolio is cross disciplinary between archaeology, applied geophysics, geosciences and heritage management and showcases the potential of geophysical methods in archaeological studies. It focuses on the digital and cost-effective discovery, exploration, and recording of buried archaeological sites and landscapes, quite often at risk, due to an increase in the intensity of agricultural practices, urban development, or climate change. It demonstrates that these minimally invasive diagnostic methods are the best ally to complement and maximise the results provided by more traditional archaeological strategies (e.g. research excavation or trial trenching in archaeological evaluation). I have been exploring the integration of soil characterisation as part of archaeo-geophysical investigations to provide more detailed interpretations of sensed/proxy data (Cuenca-Garcia et al 2018Cuenca-García 2019, Cuenca-Garcia et al. 2023). I have been also working on landscape-scale archaeological investigations of a wide range of sites in Greece, Cyprus, Norway, Emirates, Spain, Estonia and Denmark using both single channel geophysical instrumentation and motorised multi-sensor magnetometer and GPR platforms. Current work includes the following projects: NIDAROD (EE-BI009) 'From Nidaros to Novgorod: Cultures Along the Historic St Olav Routes' (Estonia), Invisible and Visible Cultural Heritage - Investigations of WW2 bunkers at Hanstholm (Denmark), and SENSING IBERIANSCAPES (CIDEXG/2022/55) 'Revealing Iron Age sites and landscapes in the Iberian Peninsula' (Spain).

Besides archaeological investigations, my interests have also developed in humanitarian applications of geophysical prospection. These include the use of high-resolution geophysics to find unmarked human burials, mass graves, and illegal infrastructure. I am a CTBTO inspector (roster) for the implementation of geophysical surveys during on-site inspections (verification regime of compliance with the CTB Treaty). I am a member of two international networks related to climate change, social justice and heritage: the COST Action CA20134 and the Climate Heritage Network.

I am opened to supervising Masters and Doctoral thesis related to topics such as archaeological geophysics, landscape archaeology in the Nordic and Mediterranean regions, and monitoring endangered cultural heritage. If you have any inquires or need guidance in these areas, please feel free to reach out to me.

Biography
 

Gianni Gallello was awarded his PhD in 2014 by the University of Valencia (Spain). In his dissertation he developed innovative methodological proposals for the study of archaeological soil and human remains, employing novel sampling strategies, Rare Earth Elements (REE), major and trace element analysis and multivariate statistics. The capability to act consistently has helped to provide the support to present new methodological proposals for a set of heterogeneous and diachronic archaeological materials (from Prehistory). During the last 10 years his research activity has been focused on the chemical analysis of different archaeological materials, testing new methodological approaches to overcome some of the most significant problems facing the archaeological community in the sphere of ancient human activity fingerprinted in the soil, post-mortem bone contaminations, lithic material origins, the raw material origins of mortar, provenance of ceramics and identification of organic materials in ancient objects. Gianni has a background in analytical chemistry and a wide range of practical and analytical skills acquired working across the disciplines of Archaeology, Biology, Geology and Analytical Chemistry. Significant results from his PhD and subsequent postdoctoral research have been published in high impact journals and participates as PI or  research group member in several national and international projects.

Gallello has been a Marie Curie Research Fellow (2016-2018) at the University of York (UK) with the MATRIX project funded by the European Commission (Horizon 2020). The aim of this innovative project called MATRIX has been to establish a new interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary methodological approach for the identification of anthropogenic deposits in archaeological excavations through the analysis of REE in soil. In 2014 Gianni founded ArchaeChemis (www.uv.es/archaechemis) at the University of Valencia. ArchaeChemis was designed as a chemical analysis unit for research and technology transfer for research groups and non-academic organizations dedicated to the study of the past. Today Gianni is a distinguished researcher at the Department of Prehistory, Archeology and Ancient History (UVEG).

Biography
 

My research work has focused on various areas of ancient Prehistory: the study of the Middle and Upper Paleolithic and Prehistoric Art. My most relevant contributions are the characterization and systematization of the Palaeolithic art of the Iberian Mediterranean, the lithic industries of the Middle Palaeolithic in the central Mediterranean region and the systematization of the sequence of the Upper Palaeolithic in this same region, with special attention to the palaeoeconomic and cultural issues. I have also contributed to a methodological renewal of the study of Levantine Art, with important contributions in relation to its evolution and the characterization of the style.

This work began with my incorporation to the University of Valencia in 1979, and has been carried out through the participation and, above all, the direction of various research projects of a national and regional nature, and some of an international nature. In this sense, I have been the PR of nine projects and have participated in another of the Sapanish National Plan, as well as in a Hispano-Belgian project and in another financed by the Leakey Foundation.

I have been director of various archaeological excavations, at sites such as the Cova Negra de Xàtiva, the Cova de les Cendres in Teulada-Moraira, the Cova de les Malladetes de Barx, the Ratlla del Bubo de Crevillent, the Cova de les Meravelles de Gandía , the Shelter of the Quebrada de Chelva, the Cave Antón de Mula, the Shelter of the Boja de Mula and the Shelter of the Doña Martina de Mula Estate, and the tracing and documentation works in the Shelters with paintings and engravings of the Cova de les Meravelles de Gandia, the Cova dels Cavalls (Tirig), Coves de la Saltadora (Coves de Vinromà), Abric de Vicent (Millares), the Cingle de la Mola Remigia (Ares del Maestre), Cova Remigia (Ares del Maestre), the Abric de la Sarga (Alcoi), the Abric de Centelles (Albocàsser) and Abric de la Xivana (Alfarb), as well as the collection of portable art of Parpalló.

My scientific production includes various monographs and about 250 articles or book chapters, both national and international.

I have been a guest speaker at various national and foreign congresses and a member of their scientific committees. I have been curator of various exhibitions related to my field of research, highlighting the one held at the University of Valencia in 2001, entitled “From Neanderthals to Cromañones. The beginnings of human settlement in the Valencian region ”.

To date, I have directed a total of 24 Doctoral Theses, as well as numerous Master's Thesis and Graduated's Thesis. I have collaborated as History Manager of the National Research Plan for the Ministry of Economy and Research and has participated in the Academy program, and as an evaluator for ANEP, ICREA and AGAUR, as well as for the Ministry of Culture of France and the UK Research Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

I direct the Prehistory Research Group of the University of Valencia (refer. UV 0423).
