My name is Sasja van der Vaart-Verschoof and I am the Overdressed Archeologist & Editor.
I’m currently assistant-curator of the Prehistory Collection of the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities, as well as a freelance researcher and editor. My current research project revolves around the exceptionally rich Fürstengrab of Frankfurt-Stadtwald, which I am in the process of analyzing. I also recently received a small research grant to conduct isotope analyses of the Iron Age burials of Oss.
At present I can frequently be found working as an academic editor for Sidestone Press, where I benefit greatly from being an English native speaker (thanks to my American mother). I am currently also an active member of the program committee for the annual meeting of archaeologists in the Netherlands the ‘Reuvensdagen’, while also working on a series of other commercial projects.
Welcome to this website where I share my passion for archaeological finds, family and fashion.
