Dave Lightbody

Hi, my name is Dave Lightbody

I am a doctor of archaeology educated at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. I was Egyptian history tutor in general arts for the undergraduate courses there for 5 years. In 2013 I completed a PhD focused on Iron Age Cyprus. I am a member of the International Association of Egyptologists and Co-Editor of The Journal of Ancient Egyptian Architecture.

The archaeology of the East Mediterranean region including Egypt has been my specialist subject area for over ten years, and during that time I served as chair of Egyptology Scotland and wrote several publications. My interests include symbolism in the architecture and artworks of the cultures that inhabited the East Mediterranean region in Antiquity, including those in Classical Greece, on the Levant, and in the Roman world.

I am now based in Burlington, Vermont, USA. As well as editing JAEA, I am currently writing a full publication focusing on the encircling symbolism of protection used in Old Kingdom pharaonic tombs and hope to have it published in 2016.
