Albert J. Ammerman, PhD

Research Professor, Archaeologist, Humanities Educator

Dr. Ammerman is a research professor, educator, and environmental archaeologist whose work has spanned interdisciplinary approaches to Classical studies, the Neolithic transition, and the human transformations of the landscape. Recently, he and his wife have conducted fieldwork at the Temple of Athena of the ancient Greek city of Paestum, and DNA studies of human genetics have confirmed the hypothesis of demic diffusion first proposed in the 1970s. His previous projects include fieldwork at early sites in Venice, Rome, Athens, Aegean Thrace, and Cyprus, and he has been affiliated with institutions such as Stanford University, the National Gallery of Art, the University of Parma (Italy), and Colgate University. Dr. Ammerman is extensively published and has lectured at conferences and symposia around the world throughout his career, as well as having led study groups, a summer field school, and excavations throughout Europe. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English literature from the University of Michigan and was awarded his Doctor of Philosophy by the UCL Institute of Archaeology in 1972. Dr. Ammerman credits his success to his interdisciplinary approach to archaeology and emphasis on placing his work within the broader context of the humanities and the sciences and looks forward to continuing to study with a focus on the effects of climate change on the manmade environment.
