Introduction

Jolanda received her master's degree in Archaeology from the Rijksuniversiteit Leiden, the Netherlands (1998). During and after her studies Jolanda worked as a field archaeologist in the Netherlands and Egypt on sites ranging from the Neolithic period to the Late Middle Ages. Her field specialties comprise archaeological beadwork analysis and human hair analysis. Over the years her career has shifted from mainly archaeology to the combination with more recent cultural heritage, its social implications and ethnographic work. In the past 15 years she has worked at several consultancies as a heritage specialist. As a consultant Jolanda specialized in the economic and social values of heritage in new (spatial)developments and the management of archaeological sites. She conducted research on the relationship between heritage, environment and tourism. The protection of archaeological sites from detrimental effects by visitors, waste accumulation and industrial pollution has been her main subject. Because of this research, her focus has also shifted towards the ‘Archaeology of the Now’ or Garbology, and - eventually - marine litter.
