Dominic Pollard is a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World. He holds a BA in Archaeology and Anthropology from the University of Oxford (2015), and an MA in Mediterranean Archaeology from University College London (2017), where he also received his PhD (2022). His doctoral dissertation investigated landscapes of settlement, subsistence and mortuary practice on Late Bronze to Early Archaic Crete. His work is particularly concerned with the relationships between human societies and the landscapes they inhabit, as well as the forms of mobility and interaction which connect communities across different regions. The Bronze and Iron Age Aegean, and wider Mediterranean, forms the chronological and regional focus of his research. He has conducted fieldwork in England, Italy and Greece, and is currently part of the Bays of East Attica Regional Survey project, and the Lyktos Archaeological Project.
