SAS Bulletin Editor, SAS Publications - Carmen Ting
Carmen Ting is currently the Renfrew Fellow at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge. Her doctoral research focused on the continuities and changes in ceramic production and exchange during the 'Maya Collapse', followed by research on the ceramics from the Caribbean. When she had had enough of rum and coke in the sun, she decided to turn her focus on the technical ceramics from Sudan (no rum but still in the sun). More recently, she has moved to yet another sunny place, i.e. Cyprus, to investigate the beginnings and development of glaze production in medieval Cyprus. As random as her research projects appear to be, her research focus has always remained to be on ancient technologies, craft organization, and the movement of technical knowledge in past societies.
