As a specialist in the archaeology, art, and culture of Bronze Age Greece, Prof. Smith's research focuses on achieving a better understanding of the Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations of the Aegean. He is particularly interested in pottery analysis, mortuary archaeology, and issues of identity in the Bronze Age Aegean. He has conducted archaeological fieldwork in the Mediterranean as far west as Spain and as far east as Israel, but his focus is on Greece, where he is currently an associate director of excavations at the Minoan town of Gournia on Crete. Prof. Smith also co-directed the excavations of the Mycenaean cemetery of Ayia Sotira near Ancient Nemea, and worked for many years at the Minoan site of Mochlos on Crete. He currently serves as the President of the Canadian Institute in Greece as well as the Niagara Peninsula Society of the Archaeological Institute of America.
