PhD, Archaeology (Digital Heritage), University of York (UK); MA, Archaeology and Art History, University of Missouri - Columbia; BA, Archaeology and Art History, University of Evansville.

Dr. Andrew Reinhard joined the ANS as its Director of Publications in December 2014, publishing the annual American Journal of Numismatics, the semi-annual Journal of Early American Numismatics, the quarterly ANS Magazine, as well as monographs. His skills include copy editing, proofreading, and typesetting as well as graphic design. He also creates the digital editions of each new publication.

A vocal supporter of Open Access (OA) publishing and Linked Open Data (LOD), Reinhard works closely with the Linked Ancient World Digital Initiative (LAWDI), a collective dedicated to openly publishing on all things ancient. Towards that end, the ANS has created the Digital Library for OA auction catalogues, books, articles, and dissertations/theses, has partnered with the HathiTrust, and is currently involved in several scanning projects to rescue out-of-print and rare numismatic books, putting that content online for free.

Prior to joining the ANS, Reinhard served for four years as the Director of Publications for the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) where he published the quarterly journal Hesperia as well as monographs and guidebooks on the Greek world, and introduced digital publications and guidebook apps.

Reinhard also worked as the Director of eLearning for Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers specializing in creating digital tools and resources for teachers and students of Latin and ancient Greek. He began his career at Willoughby Associates, a museum software company.

Although not a numismatist, Reinhard has begun to study virtual currency, specifically economic systems in video games. He is one of the first "archaeogamers", archaeologists who bring their real-world methodologies into virtual spaces, treating games as archaeological sites. His PhD work at the University of York focused on the archaeology in (and of) video games. In 2014, Reinhard led the team of archaeologists involved with the excavation of the "Atari Burial Ground" in New Mexico, and appeared in the documentary Atari: Game Over. His book, Archaeogaming: The Archaeology in and of Video Games, was published in 2018 by Berghahn Books.

Reinhard has also excavated at the Etruscan site of Poggio Civitate (Murlo) in Italy, at Isthmia in Greece, and in Kansas and Illinois.
