      Derek B. Counts is Professor and Chair in the Department of Art History at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has published extensively on the archaeology of Iron Age Cyprus, with a particular emphasis on Cypriot religion, as well as limestone votive sculpture and its associated iconography. His research interests also include 3D visualization in archaeology and its impact on interpretation and publication. He is Associate Director of the Athienou Archaeological Project (AAP), where he has been excavating for more than two decades. Recent books include The Master of Animals in Old World Iconography (2010, co-edited with Bettina Arnold), Crossroads and Boundaries: The Archaeology of Past and Present in the Malloura Valley (2011, co-edited with AAP colleagues), and Mobilizing the Past for a Digital Future: The Potential of Digital Archaeology (2016, co-edited with E.
