His research and publications have focused on the pre-Roman era in Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean, and the archaeology of pre-Revolutionary, slave-worked plantations in the U.S. Northeast. He has directed archaeological excavations in Cyprus, Israel, the Northeastern United States, and Yugoslavia, and he has also participated in excavations in Hawaii, Greece, and Turkey.
