Her main research focuses on the religion of ancient Greece, in particular ritual practices and animal sacrifice. In the last years she has conducted the project Greek sacrifice in practice, belief and theory, funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, which explores the relation between the practical, ritual reality and the ancient conception of faith, the divine and man’s relation to the gods through sacrifice. Ekroth has produced a number of studies on altars, the treatment of blood, the division and preparation of meat and the meaning of the offerings given to the gods. She has recently worked on the importance of the osteological evidence for our understanding of ancient cult-practice, editing an anthology, Bones, behaviour and belief. The zooarchaeological evidence as a source for ritual practice in ancient Greece and beyond. She has excavated in Greece and also works on Geometric and Archaic pottery.
