Dr Kristen Mann is a settlement archaeology expert and veteran field archaeologist. Kristen completed her PhD at the University of Sydney in 2019 and is also Treasurer of the Australasian Women in Ancient World Studies society and Director of the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens’ Digital Horizons Project – a vocational training project for archaeology students. Her research specialises in Greek Early Iron Age (EIA) archaeology, social history, field methodologies, and the site of Zagora on Andros. However, her interests span Mediterranean archaeology, Greek history, digital archaeology, and intersectional feminist theory more broadly. Kristen’s work is informed by fifteen years of diverse field experience on over thirty five projects in Greece, Cyprus, Jordan, and Australia. Kristen will be conducting research, material study, and student training on Andros in support of her forthcoming publication The Material Home in Geometric Greece: A Social Archaeology of Zagora on Andros which explores EIA Cycladic social dynamics through household archaeology.
