Sarah Hawley

Sarah Hawley graduated from USC with a major in Interdisciplinary Archaeology and went on to earn a Masters in Aegean Archaeology from the University of Sheffield. While at USC, Sarah studied the terracotta figurines from the Turkish site of Tell al-Judaidah. She analyzed the changes in figurine iconography around the time of Alexander the Greatís conquest, showing that figurine design changed over time as traditional Persian forms were replaced with Hellenistic iconography. Sarah presented this research at the 2010 AIA/APA annual meeting in Anaheim. She has excavated in Turkey, Chile, and England. Sarah is passionate about bringing academic archaeology to the wider public in innovative and interactive ways, through presentations, websites, collaborative projects with other disciplines, and social media.
