Anthropology and Archaeology


My research focuses on foodways in the northwest Roman Empire, with my dissertation examining the Iron Age and Romano-British landscape on a large scale. The study of food is deeply linked to the complex relationships between human societies and their environments, on which systems of food production and exchange are inherently predicated. In addition, I am currently completing a project (supported by IBES) that specifically investigates the introduction of rabbits to Britain.
