Professional Summary

Graham Braun is a second year PhD student in Bronze Age Archaeology. He holds a B.A. Honours from the University of Victoria and an M.A. from the University of British Columbia, where he wrote an M.A. thesis on 'Minoanizing' and 'Mycenaeanizing' architecture at Phylakopi on Melos. His research centres on the archaeology of Bronze Age Aegean/Mediterranean architecture, cultural entanglement as identified in the archaeological record, and tools for the digital mapping and analysis of buildings, sites, and landscapes.

Graham has completed archaeological work with the Eastern Boeotia Archaeological Project at ancient Eleon, the Anavlochos Project in eastern Crete, and the Kalavasos and Maroni Built Environments Project in southcentral Cyprus. He is currently working on a co-authored project to digitally record monumental Late Bronze Age ashlar buildings in Cyprus and understand their associated construction practices through energetic analysis.
