Dr. Hammond’s teaching focuses on courses dealing with the art and archaeology of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds, as well as study abroad. His research interests focus on Late Antiquity, a period of transformation from the classical to medieval/Byzantine eras, with a specialization in archaeological ceramic analysis. His publications on ancient Mediterranean pottery have focused on the intersection between local, regional, and long-distance ceramic traditions, and has included work on Early Roman Cyprus, Late Roman Corinth, as well as Byzantine, Venetian, and Ottoman Crete. Since 2000, he has participated on archaeological projects on various sites in Greece (the islands of Crete and Kythera, as well as Ancient Corinth), on the island of Cyprus, and in Canada. Recently, he has begun working at the archaeological site of Golemo Gradište, a Late Roman fortified settlement in the modern village of Konjuh in the Republic of North Macedonia. Dr. Hammond also serves on the board of directors of the Cleveland Archaeological Society (a local society of the Archaeological Institute of America), and currently serves as the society’s secretary.
