Phoebe Olsen

Phoebe Olsen grew up in a small fishing village on the rugged southwest coast of Ireland. There she was never far from a boat and spent most of her summers out on the water in one form or another. Being of Danish and Irish stock she felt drawn to Viking history and pursued a career in archaeology as a result. She studied archaeology and Italian at the University College of Cork followed by a Master’s degree in Osteoarchaeology. For the past few years Phoebe has been working as a field archaeologist in the UK working on a range of projects from the unearthing of a Saxon cemetery next to a Neolithic monument in Wiltshire to the deconstructing of Bronze Age cremation urns from Kent. In addition to archaeology Phoebe has also cultivated an interest in languages, having studied Irish from a young age and growing up with bilingual parents. She caught the travel bug from a young age and has lived in Hong Kong and Italy as well as working on an archaeological dig in Azerbaijan.
