    About

    I am a specialist in the archaeology of Rome’s western provinces, and in provincial architecture in particular. I am interested on the impact of empire on the peoples of the provinces, and how it altered the routines of their daily lives. I have also pioneered approaches to the social archaeology of the western provinces, in particular gender and age. I am currently working on religious architecture in Roman Britain.

    Education

    I have a BA in Classics from Cambridge, and then after a time away from academia, I took an MA in Roman Archaeology at Durham. I began my PhD on urban architecture in Roman Spain and Britain in Durham, before completing it at Southampton. I carried out part of my research as an Erasmus student at Complutense University in Madrid.
