Welcoming our newest SASA Ambassador, Dr. Frederick Winter!

SASA is excited to welcome our newest SASA Ambassador, Dr. Frederick Winter. SASA ambassadors are an integral part of our team and serve as advocates for Ancient Studies. They help us spread our mission far and wide and assist in SASA’s fundraising. Dr. Winter is the latest addition to our Ambassadorial team and his years of experience and wide range of connections will aid in fostering the growth of our organization.

Dr. Winter received his B.A. from the Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, and later received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. He has led or participated in numerous international archaeological expeditions, including trips to Israel, Turkey, Cyprus, Greece, the former Yugoslavia and Polynesia.

Dr. Winter previously taught classical courses at the City University of New York. He worked as a senior grant officer for the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Department of Education. He also helped found the Archeological Institute of America’s Committee on Professional Responsibilities and worked with the Association of American Colleges and Universities. Dr. Winter is excited to bring his wide experience with grant giving foundations at the federal level and with organizations that promote higher education to SASA.

With over 55 years of experience in archaeology, Dr. Winter has gained a vast knowledge of the ancient world. His expertise lies in the Late Bronze Age Aegean and Balkan prehistory, Hellenistic Eastern Mediterranean, the historical mid-Atlantic, and northern plantation archaeology and the archeology of enslavement.

Now in retirement, Dr. Winter continues his involvement with archeology as a member of the Council of American Overseas Research Centers and the boards of the Cyprus American Archeological Research Institute. Dr. Winter has published over a dozen journal articles in his time as an archeologist.

We are incredibly excited to welcome Dr. Winter to the team in a formal capacity and we are very much looking forward to his work with us. His work will support our growth and development as SASA continues onward and upward in our mission to promote Ancient Studies, by helping us reach our fundraising goals and expanding our network of public advocates.
