Biography

Dr Wendy van Duivenvoorde is a lecturer in maritime archaeology at Flinders University. Her current research is focused primarily on maritime trade and shipbuilding in the ancient Mediterranean and Northern Europe.  Dr van Duivenvoorde is an expert in late sixteenth and early seventeenth;century Dutch shipbuilding and her studies primarily focus on ships of exploration and Indiamen, and include the archaeological remains of Western Australia's Dutch East Indiamen shipwrecks. An additional research interest comprises ancient ship's fastenings and anchors. Dr van Duivenvoorde has become a specialist in the study of ship's fastenings dating to the ancient Greek and Roman periods. She has conducted research on the metal fasteners and anchors excavated from ancient Mediterranean merchantmen such as the Tektaş Burnu (±440-425 B.C.) and Kyrenia (3rd century B.C.) shipwrecks.
