Georg Koch studied history, computer science and public history at Freie Universität Berlin. Since 2012 he has been working in the transdisciplinary project “Living History. Reenacted Prehistory between Research and Popular Performance” at the Centre for Contemporary History in Potsdam. Within the project, he prepared his doctoral thesis about prehistory in British and German TV-documentaries. Under the title “Perceived Truth” he combined the perspectives of science and media history to a history of knowledge about archaeological finds and social fictions in the course of the 20th century.
