b_250_200_16777215_00___images_biogramy_chowaniec-roksana.jpgI work as assistant professor in Institute of Archaeology, University of Warsaw. My interests concern archaeology of Roman Sicily, relationships between Classical World and Barbarians, and popularisation and education in archaeological heritage, as well as cultural heritage management. I participate in many scientific projects (e.g. NETConnect: Connecting European Culture through New Technology” in the frames of UE-Programme „Culture 2000”; Annona militaris i pastus militum and Novae. Roman legionary camp and late roman town. Fortifications, both leaded by prof. Tadeusz Sarnowski).

At the moment I direct also following projects: Archaeological non-invasive investigations and excavations in Akrai, Sicily, Italy (2011-2013) - a grant of National Science Centre, Roman house in Greek Akrai (Sicily) (2011/03/B/HS3/00567) - a grant of National Science Centre. I am director of excavations in Akrai. 

I participate in many archaeological expeditions (Novae, Bulgaria; Tanais, Russia) and also I direct the archaeological project (non-invasive investigations, survey,  excavations) in Akrai, Sicily. I strongly cooperate with Facultat de Pedagogia Universitat de Barcelona, Spain as well as with Servizio Beni Archeologici della Soprintendenza di Siracusa.
