Ashley Hampton received a B.A. and M.A. in anthropology from Florida Atlantic University, and a Ph.D in anthropology, with a focus in archaeology, from the University of Montana. Hampton is also a 2023-2024 Networking Archaeological Data and Communities (NADAC) scholar. Her current research is centered on household archaeology in the Mid-Fraser Canyon of British Columbia, Canada, focusing on changes in use of space throughout the life-history of a singular housepit (HP54) at the Bridge River Archaeological Site located in the traditional territory of the St’át’imc Nation.  Research interests and specializations include spatial analysis, gender/identity archaeology, archaeology in pop culture, and ways to transform large-scale datasets into meaningful representations for public outreach and community-driven storytelling.
