About me

Lucas Hafner, Entziffer mich, Transcription of old Handwritten Documents, German genealogy

May I introduce myself? I am a research associate at Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz, Germany. Within the Works of Jacob Burckhardt I work as a co-editor on Volume No. 14 (The Art of Antiquity).

While editing, my transciption skills are combined with meticulous working and the interest in both archaeological and disciplinary history topics.

In addition to my studies of archeology, art history and Latin, I have been a passionate family researcher for many years.

In all these areas, dealing with the originals is necessary and at the same time incredibly exciting, as it gives you direct insight into past times – which in turn trains the understanding of our present.
