I am Killian Driscoll (@killiandriscoll), an archaeologist from Ireland living in the lovely Catalan seaside town of Vilanova i la Geltrú, 45 km south of Barcelona. I first moved to Catalonia in 2011 with my wife and children to take up a post-doctoral fellowship at the SERP (Seminari d’Estudis i Recerques Prehistòriques) University of Barcelona.
I have recently formed Artoba Tours, which offers bespoke, private tours of the archaeology of Barcelona and Catalonia. These tours, designed and led by myself, weave together the archaeology and history of Barcelona and Catalonia with today’s food and wine culture. With these tours, I’m promoting Catalonia’s rich archaeological, architectural, and gastronomic heritage, especially in encouraging tourists to see the magnificent Catalonia beyond just Barcelona.
During my week as curator for @catalanvoices I’ll be tweeting about the archaeology and history of Catalonia, Catalan food and wine, the environment, sustainable tourism, and other interesting tidbits.
