Research Topic: Landscapes and Use of Space During the Bronze Age in Western Anatolia and the Aegean

Ms.Scott’s research focuses on the Middle and Late Bronze Age of Western Anatolia and the Aegean. The goal of her dissertation research is to interrogate the traditional definition of the “citadel” in these regions by investigating the use and organization of space within and around fortified sites. In addition to engaging with theoretical literature on household archaeology and the ways that walls structure space, I will be using sediment geochemistry as a way to identify activity areas and map their distribution across space. She also hopes to integrate this data with geophysical and excavation data where available. She is also generally interested in archaeological science and in digital archaeology.
