U of A alum and Assistant Lecturer in the Department of History & Classics. I teach Latin, Roman history and archaeology, and Greco-Roman mythology.


My current research focuses on the archaeological evidence for the Latin language and Latin literacy in Roman Britain and how it factors into the cultural transformation of Britain during the Roman period. I've written on frontier food supplies and logistics, the influence of military demand on provincial economics, and the exchange of cultural objects and concepts between Roman soldiers and the civilian inhabitants of frontier communities.
