research overview

  • Elspeth Dusinberre is interested in cultural interactions in Anatolia, particularly in the time of the Achaemenid Persian Empire (ca. 550-330 BCE). Her first book, Aspects of Empire in Achaemenid Sardis (Cambridge 2003), focuses on the Lydian capital. Her second book is a diachronic excavation monograph, Gordion Seals and Sealings: Individuals and Society (Philadelphia 2005). Dusinberre's third book, Empire, Authority, and Autonomy in Achaemenid Anatolia (Cambridge 2013), winner of the 2015 Wiseman Award, considers all of Anatolia under Persian rule and proposes a new model for understanding imperialism. Her articles have appeared in, e.g., American Journal of Archaeology, Ars Orientalis, the Annals of the American Schools of Oriental Research, and Anatolian Studies. She is currently studying the seal impressions on the Aramaic tablets of the Persepolis Fortification Archive (ca. 500 BCE) and the cremation burials from Gordion, in addition to other projects at Gordion and Sardis.
