AIA-OC 2018 Educational Grant Recipients

Matt Howland, UCSD

Matt's project is a comprehensive study of archaeological ceramics recovered from an Iron Age copper production site, Khirbat al-Jariya (KAJ), in southern Jordan’s Faynan region. The project is intended to examine the role of trade and long-distance exchange in the development of social complexity, facets of the copper production industry in Iron Age Faynan which have been relatively understudied.

Alicia Gorman, UCSB

Alicia's research addresses the entanglement of religion and social inequality at the site of Cerro Tortolita, a ceremonial center with a sizable resident population located in the upper Ica Valley on the south coast of Peru.
