Archaeologists You Should Know

Featured Archaeologist – Eugene Borza
Ancient Historian, Devoted Teacher, Gracious Colleague

We asked archaeologists, historians, and classicists: who are the archaeologists the public should know? These profiles aim to share the life and work of archaeologists you should know, and to celebrate the significance of archaeological inquiry, highlight the excitement of archaeological discovery, and inspire archaeology enthusiasts as well as professional archaeologists. Our aim with this feature is to call attention to archaeologists whose work has been overlooked and/or who represent new directions in the field.

Archaeology Magazine

ARCHAEOLOGY has been published continuously for more than 70 years by the Archaeological Institute of America, which is dedicated to supporting archaeological inquiry and to fostering the pursuit of knowledge about human heritage. The July/August 2022 issue of ARCHAEOLOGY tells the story of the highly skilled workers who helped build Egypt’s Great Pyramid. Other stories include uncovering a Roman currency crisis, the discovery of the oldest Maya calendar, sailing in Sumer, and reuniting pieces of an ancient friendship bracelet.

American Journal of Archaeology

The AJA, one of the world’s most respected journals devoted to Mediterranean archaeology, has set the standard for archaeological scholarship since 1885. The July 2022 issue contains articles examining the Tomb of the Bulls in Tarquinia, depictions of Amazons in Hellenized Anatolia, and charcoal graffiti at Herculaneum, as well as a field report on settlement patterns in the Erbil Plain. Open access content includes a discussion of a Roman oil lamp excavated at Jamestown, Virginia; an updated overview of the evidence for winemaking in Italy; and a letter from our Museum Reviews Editor.
