Associate Professor Emeritus Stuart Swiny examines the art and archaeology of Cyprus from prehistory to the present; the history of ancient Greece; Islamic art and architecture; and the art and architecture of the ancient world up to the Etruscans.
Since excavating in Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan in the 1960s and 1970s, his research has focused on the eastern Mediterranean and Cyprus with emphasis on early island colonization, the emergence of complex society, the development of cult and ritual, archaeometallurgy, lithic and ceramic analysis.
Swiny focuses on the classical period in Greece and archaeological graphic documentation. He also directs field schools in archaeological surveying and excavation on the island of Cyprus. He also serves as director of the Institute of Cypriot Studies at UAlbany.
