Adrian Elise Natale
After graduating from Kenyon College in 2013, I spent my early career teaching French and Spanish in a public school. I then transitioned back to academia to pursue archaeology as a master’s student and subsequently as a Ph. D. student. I have participated in archaeological projects in the United States, Peru, Belize, and Guatemala. My masters thesis examines a collection from a Highland Maya site, Pompeya, in order to reconstruct the site’s cultural history and interregional interactions, particularly the Pacific Coast.
My research interests include Maya archaeology, ceramic petrology, ceramic manufacture and distribution, trade and exchange, palaeopathology, and regional and interregional interactions in the highlands and Pacific coast of Guatemala.
