Cheyenne is a PhD candidate and Assistant at the Faculty of Classical Archaeology at the University of Basel, under the supervision of Prof. Martin A. Guggisberg (University of Basel), Dr Sabine Fourrier (HiSoMa-MOM) and Prof. Gunnar Lehmann (Ben Gurion University of the Negev). Her current research concerns primarily the archaeology of the Paphian kingdom during the transition between the Cypro-Classical and Early Hellenistic periods (hereafter CC and EHell). In her thesis she mainly focuses on local pottery production, its evolution and interrelations with the Greek world and the Levante. The project aims to study continuities and innovations occurring between the end of the Iron Age and the beginning of the Hellenistic period, a transitional time characterised by major political changes and so far, rather understudied from the point of view of the material culture.
Cheyenne is also member of the Mission archéologique française de Kition (dir. Dr Sabine Fourrier and Dr Pauline Maillard) and the Swiss German Excavations at Palaepaphos (dir. Dr Marie-Louise von Wartburg).
Cheyenne joined the Cyprus Institute as a Research Assistant in the framework of the PlaCe-ITN project at STARC in July 2023. During her fellowship, she will be employing ceramic petrography, SEM and hhXRF analyses to study fine ware pottery productions from the two wells TE I and TE VII from Palaepaphos-Evreti, respectively dated to the Late CC and EHell periods.
