Dr. Daniel R. Turner
Daniel R. Turner holds a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Alabama (2010) with specialisations in medieval history and the archaeology of complex societies. He received an M.Phil. in Archaeological Research from the University of Cambridge (2012) after completing a dissertation on comparative labour costs of early medieval earthworks in the British Isles.
From 2012 to 2015, he served as a Staff Archaeologist for the cultural resource management firm, Panamerican Consultants, Inc. (PCI), directing more than 60 surveys and excavations across the south-eastern U.S. In 2016, he joined the ERC-funded SETinSTONE project as a PhD candidate within the Faculty of Archaeology at Leiden University, continuing with the project as a postdoctoral researcher in early 2020.
From July 2020, he will begin a funded postdoctoral project for the Anchoring Innovation research agenda within OIKOS, The Netherlands National Research School in Classical Studies. That project, “Anchoring mimetic design as a building guide during the Aegean Bronze Age”, will apply similar themes from his PhD research on Late Bronze Age tombs to Early Bronze Age fortifications.
