UC Berkeley graduate students report on their summer research and experiences at different ancient sites around the world. Lucy Gill (Anthropology) studies human-environmental interactions, particularly fisheries and volcanoes, in pre-Hispanic Central America and directs the Proyecto Arqueológico de Zapatera in Lake Cocibolca, Nicaragua. Brooke Norton (Near Eastern Studies) studies intercultural connections between Egypt and the Levant and works at Wadi el-Hudi, a mining site in the Eastern desert of Egypt. Elizabeth Keyser (Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology) studies religion in the Greek Bronze Age and works at Mt. Lykaion in Arkadia, Greece. These illustrated, first-hand reports present the latest results of current archaeological research across space and time in these exciting regions.
