My academic background is in Classical Archaeology, with a special interest in the Eastern Mediterranean. My research has focused on aspects such as (ruler) iconography, interactions between various cultures and regions, long-distance trade and exchange, and the integration of textual and archaeological evidence . My PhD focused on the composition of the Mycenaean state, comparing Greece with known political entities in the Late Bronze Age Orient. I have worked for a number of fieldwork projects (in Egypt, Syria, Greece and Romania), served as a consultant for various exhibitions, and I am the author of a number of articles and monographs on the ancient world.

MemberSarah Bond

I am an Associate Professor in the History Department at the University of Iowa. I am interested in Roman, late antique, and early medieval history, archaeology, topography and GIS, Digital Humanities, and the role of Classics in pop culture (e.g., Game of Thrones). I obtained a BA in Classics and History with a minor in Classical Archaeology from the University of Virginia (2005). My PhD is in Ancient History from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2011). My book, Trade and Taboo: Disreputable Professionals in the Roman Mediterranean, was published with the University of Michigan Press (October, 2016) and looks at the lives of marginalized tradesmen like gravediggers and tanners.

MemberPrem Sai Ramani

I am an undergraduate student currently studying in my final year at the University of Western Ontario in London, Canada. While my academic interests are quite varied, I am primarily interested in analytical chemistry, particularly in its application to archaeological science, and classical archaeology. I have spent three seasons digging at the Roman military site of Vindolanda along Hadrian’s school with the Vindolanda Field School. During this time, I have had the opportunity to conduct research on a few leather samples in the lab. I am primarily interested in understanding the extent of the degradation of chemical information, as well as the potential to identify and confirm tanning agents and other markers of the tanning process through scientific analysis.
