Paul Christesen, Assistant Professor of Classics at Dartmouth College, specializes in the history of ancient Greece, with a particular focus on athletics and economic value systems in the Archaic and Classical Periods (700-323-BCE). He received his B.A. in History and Classical Studies from Dartmouth College in 1988 and his Ph.D. in Ancient History from Columbia University in 2001.
