Recent Research Activities

Tiffany Earley-Spadoni’s current research consists of spatially-oriented investigations of expansionary state development in the ancient Near East. She develops computational models that elucidate how spatial organization both reflects historical change as well as, in certain circumstances, promotes it. Her current archaeological field project in the Vayots Dzor region of Armenia explores ancient fortress landscapes, focusing on the development of social processes such as warfare and non-urban complex state formation. The emergence of the world’s earliest communication networks—e.g. fire beacons—has been a particular emphasis of her research to-date. Her previous fieldwork includes projects in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iraq, Italy and Turkey.
