Raphaëlle-Anne Kok-Merlino Fund

“There is no other way than your own way to follow”

The Raphaëlle-Anne Kok-Merlino Fund is set up in memory of Raphaëlle-Anne. Her passion for (scientific) archaeology and her love for Basilicata and Puglia was immense.

Raphaëlle-Anne was an enthusiastic researcher and highly experienced and passionate field archaeologist. Her professionalism and her infectious vitality and strength were exemplary and remain an inspiration for many.

In 2006, Raphaëlle-Anne won a grant from the Reiman-de Bas funds (managed by the Cultuurfonds) for her follow-up study of specialisation at the University of Matera (Scuola di Specializzazione in Archeologia, Università degli studi della Basilicata).

The Raphaëlle-Anne Kok-Merlino Fund supports scientific talent in the field of (Mediterranean) archaeology.
