born 1951 in Bremen. After studying chemistry and physics in Münster he switched to prehistory, anthropology and ethnology in Hamburg (important teachers F. W. Rösing, H. Ziegert, J. Jensen). For 5 years he was scientific employee at the University of Hamburg and responsible for editing the journal Hamburger Beiträge zur Archäologie. His Ph.D. dissertation on paleonutrition was published in 1986 in Oxford. He was member of several excavations in Germany, Greece, Egypt, Syria etc. and directed the excavations of some medieval cemeteries in northern Germany as well as for two years a large excavation in the center of Lübeck.

His bibliography encompasses some onehundred titels. PC is editor of the series Studia Osteoarchaeologica and an executive editor of the former journal Archaeologia Atlantica.
