Megan completed her B.A. in archaeology at Wilfrid Laurier University in 2005, after which she worked as an archaeologist in the National Parks and Native Sites program for Parks Canada. She subsequently departed in 2006 for the Far East, where she taught English in both China and Vietnam, before returning in 2007 to complete a M.A. in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of British Columbia. Her interests include the intersections of religion, economy and culture contact across all periods, but particularly within the Mediterranean Iron Age. Other interests include imperialism, urbanization and the cultures of Central Asia in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Megan has participated on excavations and laboratory work in Canada, Bermuda, Greece (Crete, Kythera, Lefkandi and the Athenian Agora), Macedonia (Heraclea Lyncestis) and recently completed the Summer Program in Roman Pottery at the American Academy in Rome. She is a 2012 Trudeau Foundation Scholar (http://www.trudeaufoundation.ca/en/community/megan-daniels).
