Professor Van de Moortel's work focuses on the rise and decline of complex societies in the Bronze Age Aegean. She currently co-directs the Mitrou Archaeological Project in Central Greece. In 2018 she was kind enough to return to Bryn Mawr College to share part of her research with the Mitrou project in her talk "Shipbuilding, Seafaring, and Human Mobility in the Early Bronze Age Aegean: The Role of the East Aegean" as part of the ongoing Classics Colloquium lecture series. At Bryn Mawr, Professor Van de Moortel studied Aegean Prehistory and archaeological method and theory with Professor Emeritus James C. Wright.
