About Matthew Winter
I consider myself first and foremost as a broadly trained archaeologist of the Mediterranean. Currently, my main research focus is on the Hellenistic and Roman periods in the Eastern Mediterranean. I study architecture, urbanism, and social networks, all of which is guided by a firm grounding in anthropological and archaeological theory.
Strong secondary interests include Etruscan archaeology, archaeometallurgy and ancient technologies. I have worked on archaeological projects in Italy, Jordan, and Israel, spanning from the Bronze Age to the Byzantine period.
