Two UE alums pursuing advanced archaeology degrees at University of Cambridge


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Two University of Evansville archaeology alumni are working toward advanced degrees at the University of Cambridge in England.

Kevin Kay (class of 2013) and Maggie Sullivan (class of 2019) both earned archaeology degrees from UE.

Kay already earned an MPhil in archaeological research at the University of Cambridge in 2019. He was later admitted into Cambridge’s PhD program and will submit his doctoral thesis in early 2020.

Sullivan is studying for her MPhil in medieval archaeology at Cambridge. She spent one season at UE’s Jzreel Expedition in Israel as a UE student.

“Everyone in the Department of Archaeology and Art History is immensely proud of Kevin and Maggie,” said Alan Kaiser, PhD, chair of the Department of Archaeology and Art History. “While they were at UE, both proved themselves to be outstanding students. Kevin pursued his interest in archaeological theory in class projects and papers, raising questions and offering ideas that made even us professors stop and think. Maggie took advantage her time both with the Jezreel Expedition and at Harlaxton to explore and travel in order to gain first-hand knowledge about the Black Death. Each got the most out of the opportunities UE has to offer.”
