Cynthia Hannold

Degree Program: PhD


I received my Bachelor of Science in 2017 and my Master of Arts in Anthropology in 2019 from the University of Idaho. My undergraduate research included historical archaeology, bioarchaeology, lithic analysis, and was grounded in a strong four field approach, while my master’s research focused primarily on lithic studies. I am most passionate about combining traditional analytical methods with experimental archaeology to answer a wider variety of research questions. I am a PhD student in the University of Alabama Anthropology Department under Dr. Alexandre Tokovinine. My doctoral research will include work with lithic and stucco technologies to address in-migration, trade networks, and social aspects of these technologies.
