Texas Tech University
Linda R. Gosner is Assistant Professor of Classical Archaeology at Texas Tech University. Her research centers on local responses to Roman imperialism in rural and industrial landscapes of the Western Mediterranean. In particular, she studies the impact of empire on technology, craft production, labor practices, economies, and everyday life in provincial communities. Linda’s primary research and current book project examines the transformation of mining communities and landscapes in the Iberian Peninsula following Roman conquest. In addition to ongoing research and fieldwork in Spain and Portugal, Linda has co-directed the Sinis Archaeological Project in West-Central Sardinia since 2018 and worked as a core collaborator with the Progetto S’Urachi since 2013. Across these varied projects, Linda’s work engages with broad questions about human-environment interaction, community and identity, labor history, mobility, and culture contact. Linda holds a PhD from the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University.
Jeremy Hayne [+]
Progetto S’Urachi, Brown University
Jeremy Hayne's research interests cover the Western Mediterranean Iron Age and Classical and Phoenician/Punic periods. His PhD (University of Glasgow) focused on local/foreign interactions on Iron Age Sardinia and specifically the effects of long-term contacts on the island throughout the 1st millennium BCE. He is especially interested in the concepts of colonialism, migration, connectivity and the archaeology of identity and draws on anthropological and postcolonial theory to explore islandness, hybridization and connectivities of the peoples of the Western Mediterranean Iron Age. He publishes on Iron Age and Phoenician archaeology and current projects include a book on Iron Age Sardinia. He is an active archaeologist and has excavated for many years as part of Punic archaeological projects in Sardinia with the University of Glasgow and is currently ceramologist and key member of the Progetto S’Urachi run by Brown University.
