About the Author

T. Cuyler Young Jr. was born in 1934 in Iran to American Presbyterian missionaries. He received his BA in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University in 1956 and his Ph.D. in Oriental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania in 1963. from 1965 to 1973 he undertook the defining archaeological project of his career with the excavation of Godin Tepe in the Kangavar Valley of the Zagros Mountains in central western Iran. The discovery of the four thousand years of occupational remains at this site changed the way scholars understood the prehistory of Iran. After a full life dedicated to scholarship, including the directorship of the Royal Ontario Museum from 1985--1990. Cuyler Young passed away in 2006. This book is dedicated to his memory.
Hilary Gopnik received her BA in Anthropology and Classics from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and her MA/PhD in Near Eastern Studies from the University of Toronto. Her doctoral dissertation, under the supervision of Dr. T. Cuyler Young Jr., dealt with the ceramics from the Iron Age level at Godin Tepe. Gopnik is particularly interested in exploring the role of style in both modern and ancient, cultures. She has written about aspects of style as reflected in a range of artifact types including pottery, high art, and architecture, for the past ten years. Gopnik has worked as a professional writer and editor with an emphasis on history and biography. Since 2008 she has been the ceramicist and assistant director for the archaeological site of Oglanqala in Azerbaijan.
