I develop research projects and studentships with collaborative partners in Higher Education and the wider archaeology sector for MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology), the only archaeology unit that is a UKRI Independent Research Organisation. I was previously Business Development Executive (Heritage) at the University of Leicester, developing collaborative research, consultancy, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and contract research projects between organisations in the heritage sector and academic staff in the Schools of Archaeology & Ancient History, History, Arts, and Museum Studies. These knowledge exchange activities ensure that teaching and research into heritage and the historic environment continues to inform, and be informed by, professional practice. I undertook my PhD at Leicester’s Centre for Historical Archaeology, in the School of Archaeology & Ancient History, where I contributed to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Historical Archaeology. Before coming to Leicester I was Senior Archaeologist in the Built Heritage department at MOLA and previously worked for archaeology units across Britain. I am a full Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (MCIfA), Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) and Hon. Secretary of the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology.
This work reconstructs the lives of Europeans 40 000 years ago through four nonverbal languages found in Grotte Chauvet, Grotte Lascaux, and rock art around the world. The entirety of both caves are translated here for the first time. The cultures are understood through the Art, Astronomy, Religion, and Ritual depicted in the caves. The Index provides a handy field guide to understanding Rock Art worldwide. For those who enjoy Art History, Ancient Religion, Mysticism, Archeology, Greek Classical Literature or Mythology, Ancient History, Languages or Linguistics, Womens Studies, or Human Migration
Victoria Leonard is a postdoctoral researcher in late ancient history, as part of the ERC-funded project ‘Connected Clerics. Building a Universal Church in the Late Antique West (380-604 CE)’, at Royal Holloway, University London and the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities (ACDH-ÖAW), Austrian Academy of Sciences (Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften). Victoria’s role within the project involves compiling data on clerical connections and using adapted digital tools to examine and visualize evolving clerical networks in the late ancient and early medieval western Mediterranean. Victoria’s research focuses on four main areas: i) social network analysis and digital humanities; ii) ancient and early medieval historiography; iii) ancient religion, particularly conflict and coercion; iv) and gender, sexuality, violence, and theories of the body in antiquity. Her monograph, In Defiance of History: Orosius and the Unimproved Past, is under contract with Routledge. The work explores Paulus Orosius’s historiographical approach to the deconstruction and reconstruction of a narrative of the past through the prism of Christianity. Victoria has published articles in Vigiliae Christianae, Studies in Late Antiquity and forthcoming in Gender and History. Victoria is also a Research Associate at the Institute of Classical Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London. She is a founding member, former co-chair, and steering committee member of the Women’s Classical Committee (UK). She teaches across the disciplines of ancient history, archaeology, and religious studies. She has convened modules in material approaches to the ancient world and ancient religion, and has held teaching positions at Bristol and Cardiff universities.

Ph.D. in Ancient History, Yale University, in progress (anticipated 2022)…
I am currently a Ph.D. student in the combined doctoral program in Ancient History at Yale University. I explore the interactions between the Roman government and marginalized religious groups during the period known as Late Antiquity (c. 150-700 CE). My chief interest lies in how and why those relationships changed as the Roman empire became increasingly Christianized throughout that period. I seek to better understand where, when, and why the Roman government (whether Christian or non-Christian) used violence to police and enforce religious norms and identities. I also examine other means (such as law, ritual, and architecture) the government employed to reinforce these normative religious identities. I am also interested in gender and sexuality studies in the Roman world. Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com with any questions.
I am a PhD student at the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, working on the history of the built environment of the Nile valley under the British Empire. Prior to moving to Edinburgh, I studied for a BA in Ancient History and History and an MA in Urban History, both at the University of Leicester. I also have an active interest in educational practices and learning technologies, and worked as an intern in the Technology Enhanced Learning team at St Mary’s University, Twickenham, in the summer of 2016. I am chair of Pubs and Publications, a blog about PhD life. My current research combines environmental, architectural and urban histories to produce a new understanding of British imperial power in the Nile valley in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This can open up new readings of the histories of empire and modernity.
