This is the website of Jonathan Hanna, PhD Candidate in Anthropology at Penn State University.
Things are a bit messy at the moment, so please check back soon for further updates.

About Me: Broadly-speaking, my research interests center on circum-Caribbean ancient human ecology,
particularly the early colonization of the Lesser Antilles (Grenada) and Classic Maya commoners (Belize).
My dissertation focuses on the pre-Columbian settlement of Grenada and its implications on regional settlement patterns and chronologies
(see "My Project" link below for more).
Key Interests: Caribbean and Mesoamerican archaeology, human behavioral ecology (HBE),
remote sensing/GIS, domestic economies, domestic ritual, public archaeology, radiocarbon analysis, anthrosols, geochemistry, and paleoethnobotany.
