Caroline Arbuckle is an archaeologist and Egyptologist who specializes in the study of ancient craft production. Her current research focuses on the long history of wooden coffin construction in ancient Egypt, in order to analyze the shifts in production practices as woodworkers, priests, and patrons adjusted to religious, environmental, and social changes. She received her PhD in archaeology from the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2018.
In addition to her work on coffins, Caroline is also involved in digital pedagogy and digital archaeology. Most recently she has been studying the integration of digital games in undergraduate archaeology courses.
