Sarah Hilker is an archaeology graduate student in the Classics Department at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She has a B.A. in Classics from the University of Pennsylvania (2010). For her M.Sc. in the Technology and Analysis of Archaeological Materials at University College London, she analyzed the evidence for polychromy on selected Mesopotamian statues from the British Museum (2012). Sarah also has a M.A. in Classical Archaeology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2014), for which her thesis examined the iconography and use of Minoan versus Mycenaean Wall Paintings. Sarah has served as a trench supervisor at the Myceanean site of Iklaina in Messenia and the EIA-Archaic site of Azoria in eastern Crete. She has also excavated as part of the North Baths Project at Morgantina (Sicily) and the Roman Peasant Project in Tuscany. Sarah is primarily interested in the Bronze Age Aegean, but she is also more generally interested in ancient technology, ancient trade and economy, and archaeological science. Her dissertation will examine the relationship between Mycenaean domestic spaces and Mycenaean social structure and settlement patterns.
