Dr. Tina Greenfield is an archaeologist whose interests lie in the earliest cities and empires of the ancient world. She received her PhD from the University of Cambridge and has taught Mesopotamia Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. She is a co-director of the Near Eastern and Biblical Archaeology Lab at the University of Manitoba. She has participated on field projects in Canada, Europe, South Africa, Turkey and most recently in Iraq and Israel.

More specifically, in her role as the environmental coordinator for the University of Cambridge and British Museum based projects she has helped to train local Iraqi archaeologists in excavating and documenting cultural heritage damage at sites in Iraqi Kurdistan (N. Iraq) (Darband I Rania), and Southern Iraq (Tello). She continues to work with numerous other excavation projects in the Near East including the Universities of Pennsylvania (Lagash), Chicago (Nippur) and Ariel in Israel (Tel Burna).

She is the PI of a SSHRC Grant for her project “Mobile Economies: A bioarchaeological approach to food economies and mobility in Southern Mesopotamia in the 3rd Millennium BC”. It is a holistic approach to building a model for the understanding of food production, climatic adaptive strategies, socio-economic, and ritual behaviour, and mobility within, between and across complex ancient societies, that can be applied to archaeological studies anywhere in the world.
