Kamil Karski is an archaeologist working with the Museum of Kraków. After completing his MA in 2013 he took part in field research focused on the 20th century "dark heritage" including researching The Great War and The Second World War in southern Poland. Since 2017, he has coordinated an archaeological research project in the area of Plaszow concentration camp. His main interests include the so-called archaeology of the contemporary past, the popularization of research results (community archaeology), and the protection of archaeological cultural heritage.
