Kate Rose is an archaeologist and PhD Candidate in Anthropology at Harvard University. She specializes in the archaeology of the Near East and North Africa, mortuary archaeology, landscape archaeology, and ancient urbanism. She approaches ancient cemeteries through analyzing their integration with the surrounding landscape, intra-site spatial patterns, and theoretical paradigms of identity politics and intersectionality. In 2008, she participated in her first field school in Menorca, Spain with the Eco Museu de Cap de Cavalleria. In 2009, she was invited back to the field school to serve as an excavation and laboratory supervisor for the Roman city and fort excavation at the site. She graduated from Stanford University in 2013 with a BA in Archaeology with honors. While at Stanford, she specialized in Neolithic archaeology of the Near East and Anatolia. She published and excavated at El Hemmeh, Jordan and Çatalhöyük, Turkey. She began her studies at Harvard and joined the Amarna Project in Egypt, excavating 18th dynasty non-elite cemeteries in the ancient city of Akhetaten. She also started working in Sudan at the cemeteries of El-Kurru, Jebel Barkal, and El-Zuma. She also worked as a drone pilot and surveyor for the Erbil Plain Archaeological Project in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq. Her dissertation investigates the relationship between gender and power in ancient Nubia through spatial analyses of royal cemeteries. She is currently starting an excavation project in Sudan at Jebel Barkal and serving as the Pedagogy and Writing Fellow at the Department of Anthropology at Harvard. She has taught for numerous classes in archaeology, social anthropology, and human evolution.
