Dr. Terence Christian is an archaeologist and historian specializing in conflict archaeology and military history. Enthralled by historical travel from an early age, his first adventure abroad took him across Scandinavia and through the historic Russian capitals. Since that time, Terence has traveled extensively, visiting most of the world’s continents and oceans both as an expedition leader, expedition staff, a zodiac driver, and a bear guard. Living in Scotland for nearly a decade, Terence has hiked some of the most remote places in the British Isles, while also recording previously unmapped archaeological sites. Most at home knee-deep in mud examining the remnants of the past, his research focuses on the history and archaeology of the late 19th to early 21st century. Though he has particular interest in global conflict, World War II, aviation archaeology, historic ballistics, and experimental archaeology, Terence’s research and teaching frequently intersect with associated fields including prehistory, early modern history, anthropology, and historic preservation. Terence completed his Ph.D. in conflict archaeology at the University of Glasgow. He subsequently taught archaeology and history at the University of Glasgow before serving as the Military Historian for the US National Park Service’s American Battlefield Protection Program in Washington, D.C. and as the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency Historian-in-Residence for Temple University in Philadelphia.
