Sarah James (Ph.D. The University of Texas at Austin 2010) studies the society, economy, and material culture of the Hellenistic Period (4th-1st centuries B.C.). An experienced field archaeologist, she excavated at Corinth for 12 years and co-wrote the site’s field manual (UND Digital Press 2017). Her publications include archaeological field reports, as well as articles and book chapters on northeast Peloponnesian ceramics, Hellenistic trade networks, and the cultural transition from the Greek to Roman period. Her new book is Corinth VII.7: Hellenistic Fine Wares (2018), and she is preparing another on the imported pottery from Hellenistic Corinth. She is currently co-director of the Western Argolid Regional Project and assistant director of the Sikyon Archaeological Project in southern Greece. Starting in 2020, in collaboration with the University of Split, she will direct a new archaeological project in southern Croatia.
