Kyle Brunner

Third Year

I received my BA in History and Classical Studies with a minor in Archaeology in 2014 at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have worked on a number of archaeological excavations in Jordan with the University of Copenhagen at Jerash and 'Aqaba. As well, I have excavated in the Moquegua Valley in Peru. Currently, I am a part of the Late Antique Jerash Project, which is investigating the continuance of domestic occupation in Jerash from the Late Roman to 'Abbasid period on the southwest hilltop. During my time at ISAW, I intend to investigate settlement practices and functions in the Byzantine and Islamic worlds. Particularly, I am interested in rural communities and their socioeconomic impact on the immediate hinterland, and the wider Byzantine-Islamic worlds during the 7th to 10th centuries. I intend to assess these settlements through archaeological, geospatial and historical approaches.
