About Jesper

With a certain uncomforted I have decided to join this community. I confess that I merely have experience in a very specific field of storytelling. I am a specific archaeologist that protects cultural heritage. As you might think this is strange, let me convince you of the opposite in the underlying biography.

Surely there is a movie that made you familiar with a historical lesson. Our cognitive memory is full with example legacies such as Spartacus and Hercules. These are part of our (in)tangible heritage. Historical person, places and objects are essential for providing knowledge of our current society.

I am responsible for the process of knowledge of the past towards our current society. Therefore, the public has to be reached in a correct way. The realisation of these stories towards the public lays in interdisciplinary co-operation between various working fields.

What I can do for you is very simple: I’m an educated to work with various cultures, communities and societies. For you I can function as an advisory contact which helps you portray the past.
For instance did you know that; the death is portrayed with an hourglass and a pineapple is symbolic to wealth. Or that the nine ancient muses (origin of the word museum) are always portrait with writing tablet, scroll, flute, cithara, tragic mask, veil, lyre, comic mask or globe?
In my opinion subtle information can aid to various projects in this specific social network.

Personally, I do not claim to have al knowledge of the past but I have a great network I can you to help you further in your project.

If you’ve found my information interesting, or do you think my knowledge can be useful in you project than please let me know by contacting me!
