Guillaume Epinal

Portrait of Guillaume   Epinal

Self-taught archeologist, Guillaume Epinal (Le Mans, 1984) has developed his passion for "preventive archaeology" and ancient material cultures by volunteering on several archeological sites in France, Italy, Syria, and Southeast Asia.

In Cambodia, his contribution to ceramology and pre-Angkorian artifacts studies has been recognized by EFEO and UNESCO representatives, as well as Cambodian researchers such as Michel Tranet. With grants from the National Bank of Cambodia, he has published summaries of the research on pre- and post-Angkorian tin, silver and gold coins, under the guidance of historian Jean-Daniel Gardère. Guillaume Epinal is currently PhD candidate in Archeology at EHESS (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris, France).
