Dr. Kata Furholt

Kata Furholt is a research fellow and lecturer at Kiel University (CAU) in Germany. Since 2021, she has been working on the XSCAPE project (ERC Synergy grant) where she studies the materiality of Prehistoric Societies with special attention to burial practices and how related to the objects and the body in the grave context in the light of the visuospatial perception.

She studied (as Kata Szilágyi) at Szeged (SZTE) and Budapest (ELTE) in Hungary. From 2011 to 2021 she worked at Móra Ferenc Museum in Szeged, Hungary, and finished her PhD in 2019 at Budapest (ELTE), on the topic of the chipped stone tool production activity of the south-eastern-group of the Late Neolithic Lengyel culture.

She worked as an invited lecturer at the University of Szeged (2015-2019), the University of Oslo (2020-2021) and at Kiel University (2021). Her teaching focus is on Prehistoric Europe, social and cognitive archaeology, lithic technology, museology, and more detailed courses of burial rituals, settlement patterns and depositional practices in Central Europe (especially the Carpathian Basin) from the Mesolithic to the Bronze Age.
