I recently completed my MA in Archaeology at Durham University with a focus on the Near East.
My dissertation used QGIS to examine visibility characteristics of infrastructure of control in relation to landscapes of movement. Using the late Hittite kingdom of Tarhuntassa as a case study, my research explored how visibility can support studies of ancient frontiers and landscapes of control, and also how it can inform site detection strategies.
I previously worked with the Konya Regional Archaeological Survey Project in Turkey, where the realities of endangered heritage are encountered on a daily basis in the form of looting, development, and agricultural activity, as well as volunteering on excavations in Greece and the UK. Before my MA, I read Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Oxford, with a focus on interculturality in Archaic Greek ‘colonial’ settlements – particularly at the Egyptian site of Naukratis.
