Isis Mesfin is a Master 2 Quaternary and Prehistory student at the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle within UMR 7194 “Histoire naturelle de l’Homme préhistorique”. Her research thesis focuses on the Middle Stone Age lithic industries in Atlantic Central Africa. Her specialization in lithic technology allowed her to acquire technical reading, data analysis, and lithic drawing skills.
Simultaneously, her field training took place mainly on prehistoric sites in France, the Philippines and Russia, and also in the Middle East alongside various teams. These experiments allowed her to master archaeological excavation methods, stratigraphic reading and surveying, recording methods, and post-excavation tasks.
