Dr. Brogan received his undergraduate degree in Classical Civilization at Wabash College and his MA and PhD in Classical Archaeology from Bryn Mawr College. He has been an active member of several excavations in east Crete during the past twenty years, primarily at Mochlos where he has been the assistant director since 1992. His research interests include Minoan material culture (pottery, weights and architecture), and he places particular emphasis on contextual and regional analysis. His recent studies include Mochlos IB: Period III. Neopalatial Settlement on the Coast: The Artisans' Quarter and the Farmhouse at Chalinomouri.
