Anagnostis P. Agelarakis (Greek: Αναγνώστης Π. Αγελαράκης) is a professor of Anthropological Archaeology and Physical Anthropology at Adelphi University.[1]

He received a B.A. from Lund University in 1977, in Classical Archaeology and European Ethnology, and conducted his post-baccalaureate studies at Lund Polytechnic Institute in 1980, in Environmental Studies. In 1988, he earned an M.Phil. in Anthropology, and in 1989, a Ph.D., in Archaeology and Physical Anthropology from Columbia University.

Dr. Agelarakis has worked at archaeological sites throughout the world, and in 2013 is engaged in field research at Eleutherna in Greece (Crete).[2][3][4] He was instrumental in helping to identify an Iron Age matriline—a so-called “dynasty of priestesses”[5] — at the site, based on the dental epigenetic traits of the individuals buried there.
