Sarah K. Yeomans is an archaeologist who teaches Biblical archaeology at West Virginia University. She is also the Director of Educational Programs for the Biblical Archaeology Society. Sarah received her graduate degree in archaeology from the University of Sheffield, England. Her research, in collaboration with the Centre Nationale de Récherche Scientifique (C.N.R.S.) in Aix-en-Provence, was a study of cultural and religious syncretism in the ancient Roman provinces. Though a native Californian, her work has brought her to live in France, England and Italy before settling her in Washington D.C.
While residing in Rome, she taught Roman history, archaeology and art history at Duquesne University’s Rome program and conducted research on religious syncretism in the Roman Empire as well as the role of the later Catholic Church in the development of science. Her current research involves the archaeological research of Biblical sites in the Near East as well as ancient medical technology. A fellow of the Explorer’s Club, Professor Yeomans is also a certified archaeological speleologist.
She has appeared as an interviewed expert on the History Channel’s “Cities of the Underworld” series, is a contributing writer at Archaeology Magazine and the Biblical Archaeology Review, and has lectured widely on a variety of topics pertaining to Roman and Biblical archaeology, the revival of antiquity in the Renaissance and ancient medicine in the Mediterranean world.
