About this Event
Dr Joanne Rowland has been working in the Nile Delta since 1998 on projects ranging in date from the Middle Palaeolithic and Neolithic to the Ptolemaic and Roman. She gained her PhD in Archaeology from the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, in 2004, with a dissertation topic connected with early complex societies in Egypt and the quantitative study of mortuary data in the eastern Nile Delta in the 4th-early 3rd millennium BC. She was a research fellow at the Research Lab for Archaeology (University of Oxford) on the Egyptian chronology project (2006-9), after which she moved to the Egyptian Department of the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels as a scientific collaborator for the renewed investigations of the Belgian Expedition to El Kab in southern Egypt. From 2010-16, Joanne held the position of Junior Professor in Egyptian Archaeology at the Freie Universitaet Berlin. She is the director of two fieldwork projects in the Nile Delta, both under the auspices of the Egypt Exploration Society, the Imbaba Prehistoric Survey and the Minufiyeh Archaeological Survey. She joined the University of Edinburgh in 2016 as Lecturer in Archaeology.
