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.
Professionally, I now focus on publishing and editorial work, on journals, books, websites, and articles relating to both technical and academic topics.
Academically, the archaeology and architecture of the East Mediterranean region including Egypt has been my specialist subject area for over ten years. During that time I served as chair of Egyptology Scotland, wrote several publications, and presented my research at lectures and conferences. My interests focus on symbolism and technologies used to create the monumental architecture and artworks produced by the cultures that inhabited the East Mediterranean region in Antiquity, including those of Egypt, Classical Greece, on the Levant, and in the Roman world.
I am now based in Burlington, Vermont, USA. My Academia site can be found here.
