Faculty of Classics



My work focuses on burials and funerary practices in the Roman West, exploring the effects of imperial occupation on identities, memory, and the invented traditions of the elite. I am also keen to see how the data included in my PhD thesis 'Identity and Social Change in North-Western Europe (BCE 250 - 200 CE): new narratives through funerary evidence' speaks to questions of demography and social differentiation. I have been involved in several excavation projects, mainly in Britain (Dorchester on Thames, Harpham).

I am Research Associate on the AHRC-funded 'Roman York beneath the streets' project (2021-24). The project seeks to reassess our understanding of Eburacum in the light of evidence from past excavations and museum archives, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), and a new subsurface deposit model for the city.
