Katie Campbell

Katie is an archaeologist, carrying out research into the impact of the Mongol invasions on the cities of Central Asia and the Caucasus. By identifying the archaeological remains of conquest versus abandonment and desertion, her Dphil aims to evaluate the impact of the Mongols in this region in the 13th and 14th centuries. She is excavating in central Barda, Azerbaijan and will compare the archaeological remains at this site to other cities in Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan.

Prior to working on the Nizami Ganjavi Project she worked as an archaeologist across Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia, and recently completed an MSc at the University of York, using 3D recording to document and analyse a monumental mud brick building in Turkmenistan.
