Toby Wilkinson is an archaeologist specialising in Near Eastern and central Eurasian protohistory and GIS analysis. Trained in archaeology and anthropology at Oxford and UCL, his doctoral research, completed at the University of Sheffield, used spatial modelling of travel routes to examine trade patterns during the 3rd millennium BC. He has spent considerable time working as researcher in Turkey (at the British Institute at Ankara; Koç University’s Research Centre for Anatolian Civilizations; Istanbul University’s Department of Protohistory) and continues to collaborate on a field project based in Turkey. His current research uses digital mapping to examine the role of innovations in technology and consumption patterns in the transformation of 5th and 4th millennium BC societies.
