Dr. Aymeric Hermann
My research focuses on the evolution of Pacific societies, centering on the relationships between technology, exchange systems and social organisations in Oceania through time. As an archaeologist, I have always incorporated a strong ethno-historical element as well as archaeometric evidences into my research.
My current projects involve the study of the settlement history in Pacific islands and especially the Polynesian diaspora phenomenon, the expression of past social events through a technological approach of material cultures, and interisland interactions through archaeometric evidences such as geochemical fingerprints.
