calla photo 1Calla McNamee received her Ph.D. in 2013 from the Department of Archaeology at the University of Calgary. Her research has utilized multidisciplinary analyses, particular palaeoethnobotany, geoarchaeology, and landscape assessment to investigate human environmental interactions and subsistence economies. She is currently the Post-doctoral research fellow at the Wiener Laboratory for Archaeological Sciences at the American School for Classical Studies where her research combines the analysis of microbotanicals, both starch grains and phytoliths, extracted from groundstone artifacts with GIS and landscape analysis to investigate changing subsistence and agricultural practices on Mainland Greece through the Bronze Age. Her current research also incorporates the development of a starch grain comparative collection that includes important Greek economic and native plant species.
