Meet the team: Alejandra Galmés

Alejandra Galmés is from Mallorca (Balearic Islands). She received her BA in History at the University of the Balearic Islands in 2013 and completed her MA in Prehistoric Archaeology at the Complutense University of Madrid in 2014 with a final dissertation entitled “Visibility and perception in the construction of a prehistoric landscape. The case of Calvià (Mallorca, Balearic Islands)” . She is currently a PhD candidate at the Complutense University of Madrid. Alejandra is interested in Landscape Archaeology, Island and Mediterranean Archaeology and, of course, Public Archaeology. She has conducted activities at the University of the Balearic Islands to engage teenagers and children in Archaeology. Living in Mallorca, an island with a rich cultural heritage but mostly known for its pubs and discos, makes her very aware of the importance of making science and heritage more public.
