Myles Chykerda comes from Edmonton, Canada, where he received a B.A. Honours in Anthropology and Classics (2004) and joint M.A. in classical archaeology and in humanities computing (2010), both from the University of Alberta. Although originally interested in the archaeology of the Roman army, his focus shifted to Greek defensive strategies at both the city and regional level while studying under Dr. Margriet Haagsma. Through his Ph.D. work, he plans to expand these concepts to a broader geographical, material, and temporal range in order to examine the emergence of state organization and regional identity in the Thessalian plains.
