Research interests

Dr Daniel Calderbank is a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow.

Project Title - Life at the Margins of Power: the reach of Mesopotamian states in the 2ndmillennium BCE

His postdoctoral research draws on ceramic assemblages from across Mesopotamia to empirically assess the ways in which ancient states materially reproduced themselves. The ultimate aim of this project is to transform our current conceptual models of early complex societies.

Daniel received his PhD in Mesopotamian Archaeology from the University of Manchester in 2018. His central research interests include:

  • Early complex societies
  • The materiality of state power
  • The archaeology of the Sealand Dynasty
  • Craft traditions
  • Pottery production and use
  • The materiality and social significance of food ways
  • Cultural heritage protection and outreach

Daniel has worked on archaeological excavation and survey projects in southern Iraq, Iraqi-Kurdistan, Cyprus, and Scotland, and is currently involved with the following projects:
