BUFFALO, N.Y. — Ezra Zubrow, PhD, of Amherst, a University at Buffalo archaeologist of international renown whose recent research has taken him from India to Finland, and from Northern Quebec and Egypt to Kamchatka, has been elected a Fellow of the scholarly Society of Antiquaries of London, the world’s premiere learned society for heritage.
This distinguished international association was founded in 1707 (although its roots extend into the 16th century) to encourage, advance and further the study and knowledge of the antiquities and history of Britain and countries abroad. Fellows, elected by existing members of the society in recognition of their significant achievement in the heritage field, are entitled to use the initials FSA after their names.
Fellows include directors of national museums and galleries, heads of university departments and directors of conservation charities, as well as well-known authors, journalists and broadcasters, bishops, peers and members of parliament, and members of other professions, all distinguished by their expertise in various aspects of heritage studies. Stephen Dyson, PhD, Park Professor of Classics at UB, was elected a fellow in 2009.
Zubrow is a professor in the UB departments of anthropology and geography in the UB College of Arts and Sciences and senior research scientist at the National Center for Geographic Information Analysis Laboratory (UB), which he helped to found. He also is an adjunct professor of anthropology at the University of Toronto, and an honorary Fellow in the Department of Archaeology at Cambridge University and was the Yip Fellow in 2008 and 2010 at Magdalene College, Cambridge.
