Dr. Jon M. Frey
Associate Professor of Classical Studies
Michigan State University
I am a classical archaeologist specializing in Greek and Roman architecture, with a particular interest in construction processes and the phenomenon of material reuse in post-classical antiquity. While the majority of my fieldwork experience is in the area of Greece known as the Corinthia, over the past two decades I have also worked in Egypt and on the islands of Crete and Kythera. As the Director of the Michigan State University Excavations at Isthmia, I lead a team of researchers engaged in the use of digital tools to explore and publish the evidence about the ancient world contained in archaeological archives.
I am author of Spolia in Fortifications and the Role of the Common Builder in Late Antiquity (2015) and the recipient of an NEH Digital Humanities Implementation Grant.
