Drs. Christo Thanos
Christo Thanos (1968) studied Prehistory of Northwest Europe at Leiden University. After his graduation in 1995, he was employed for seven years as field archaeologist and later as project supervisor by RAAP Archeologisch Adviesbureau (specialization: auger survey). From 2002 to 2010 he was employed at the Netherlands Cultural Heritage Agency working on Archis, the national database for archaeological sites. One of his additional jobs was the locating and making accessible of old archaeological archives and archaeological films. While working with these old archives his interest was aroused in the history of archaeology (in particular the life and work of Glyn Daniel (1914-1986) and Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890)). In 2011 Christo worked for the engineering office Grontmij as archaeological advisor, and from 2012 he is working as archaeological advisor for nine councils in the province of South-Holland.
