Isabel García Trócoli

   Isabel García Trócoli
was born in Barcelona in 1965. She studied Ancient History and Archaeology at the U.A.B. (Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona). After an apprenticeship period at the Bermuda Maritime Museum with Dr. Edward C. Harris, and postgraduate studies in Italy, in 1988 she translated into Spanish Principles of Archaeological Stratigraphy, the major contribution of Dr. Edward C. Harris to archaeology worldwide.

She has combined her translation of history books (Bruce Trigger’s History of Archaeological Thought, Bob Brier’s Egyptian Mummies, Mario J. Cereghino’s Che Guevara Top Secret) with the popularization of archaeology, collaborating with the History Museum of Barcelona and the National Archaeological Museum of Catalonia.

At present (2009), while she completes a master’s degree in Egyptian language and civilization, she teaches Egyptian hieroglyphs in the Ancient Near East Institute of the U.A.B. and takes care of her two loving children.
