Ariane de Saxcé
Ariane de Saxcé is an archaeologist and a Research Associate for South and Southeast Asia with Deutsches Archäologisches Institut (DAI, Bonn, Germany) and University of Paris III Sorbonne.
Her specialization area is the archaeology of South Asia and the Indian Ocean, with an emphasis on maritime trade networks and cultural connections with the Mediterranean world. She has excavated in South India, Sri Lanka, Egypt and France, both on land and underwater. Her research relies on quantified analysis of archaeological remains, together with an anthropological approach of cultural artefacts, to put into relief the dynamics of the exchanges in this area and particularly the East to West flow of goods, people or iconography.
