Title of thesis: Politics and the Past in the Age of Nerva and Trajan


Before embarking on the PhD, I did both my BA and MPhil at Cambridge. My PhD  thesis looks at the (mis)representation and politicisation of the past, in particular in Nervan and Trajanic sources. My wider interests include all things Roman and history, as well as contemporary politics and football.
