Stella Skaltsa trained as a classical archaeologist and ancient historian in Athens (BA) and then in Oxford (MPhil and DPhil). After completing her doctorate on Hellenistic gymnasia, she first moved to Brussels as a post-doctoral fellow and then to Copenhagen. For the past ten years, she was engaged in two international projects: first, the Copenhagen Associations Project (2011-2016); and then the Rhodes Centennial Project (2016-2023), an interdisciplinary archaeological collaboration with the Ephorate of the Dodecanese. As a result of the project in Rhodes, she also has a special interest in the Hellenistic and Roman material culture of the Eastern Mediterranean. She has taught courses in classical archaeology in Oxford and on ancient history and epigraphy at the Open University of Cyprus.
