Marko Sraka comes from Prekmurje. After completing his schooling at Franc Miklošič Grammar School in Ljutomer, he studied archaeology at the University of Ljubljana’s Faculty of Arts. Following graduation he was employed as a young researcher at the Department of Aarchaeology, and in 2016 defended his doctoral dissertation on the subject of radiocarbon dating and the chronology of the Neolithic and Eneolithic in Slovenia.

He then returned briefly to his native Prekmurje, where he worked at the Dvorec Rakičan public research and education institute. There he was responsible for creating and carrying out national and European cultural heritage projects. From 2018 he was employed as an archaeologist at Skupina Stik: as a field director he worked on archaeological investigations of Roman burial sites in Ljubljana, with almost 300 new Emona graves being documented in the last few years.

He is the author of numerous scientific papers, monograph chapters and book guides, has drawn up the first reports of a number of archaeological findings, and has spoken at science symposiums at home and abroad.
