Dr  Lacey  Wallace

Research Associate in Roman Archaeology

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Queens' College.

Dr. Wallace conducts research on the archaeology of the western Roman Empire with Prof. Martin Millett. Current projects include the post-excavation analysis and publication of the survey and excavation at Thwing, East Yorkshire. Her past research has focussed on early Roman London and she is currently the Principal Investigator of The Canterbury Hinterland Project.

In collaboration with co-directors Dr. Paul S.
