This is the personal website of Jonathan Hanna, island archaeologist in Grenada, West Indies, and a founding member of Heritage Research Group Caribbean (HRGC). HRGC is a non-profit consulting firm that advocates for the implementation of historical and archaeological impact assessments in Grenada (and aspirationally all the Windward Islands).
I received my PhD in Anthropology from the Pennsylvania State University in 2018, after having completed my dissertation on the pre-Columbian archaeology of Grenada, Ancient Human Behavioral Ecology and Colonization in Grenada, West Indies (it is currently under embargo while I publish the chapters but you can email me for a copy). As an anthropological archaeologist in the Caribbean, my research centers on the intersection of human-environmental interaction, conservation and heritage policy, and sustainable economic development. I have spent much of the past decade living and working in Grenada, first as a Peace Corps Volunteer (2010-2013) and later as a Fulbright Scholar (2017-18).
Key Interests: Caribbean archaeology, human behavioral ecology (HBE), remote sensing/GIS, domestic economies, domestic ritual, public archaeology, archaeological prospection, radiocarbon analysis, anthrosols, geochemistry
