Title of thesis: Encounters with Londinium: Nineteenth-century responses to London's Roman past


Biography:

My research explores Victorian responses to London’s Roman past. I am interested in how archaeological discoveries from Londinium became entwined in modern lives; how they were incorporated into negotiations of personal and civic identity; and, how, as the material traces of lost lives and a fallen civilisation, they enabled individuals and institutions to confront their own legacies. Before coming to Cambridge, I studied at Durham University and at King's College London.

Other academic interests:

Roman Britain and classical reception in the nineteenth century.
