Postgraduate Doctoral Research
Postgraduate research is a central and exciting part of the research culture of the School of Archaeology & Ancient History at the University of Leicester, which boasts doctoral students from across the UK and around the world. Staff pride themselves on supervising and doing the most for their students during their doctoral studies and beyond.
The postgraduate community (both on campus and Distance Learning) is thriving and stimulating, and is an active one in terms of giving papers and presenting posters, organising seminars and even conferences at Leicester. Recent and current students have edited two conferences volumes (both published in our Monographs series). For recent project posters see links identified below.
Success is constant: recent PhD completions and passes include Sophia Adams, Chantal Bielmann, Melissa Edgar, Brooklynne Fothergill, Matthew Hobson, Matty Holmes, Kate Parks, Kelly Reed, Gavin Speed, Mark Van Der Enden, Mumtaz Yatoo and Muhammad Zahir (all campus-based) and Gala Argent, Stan Berryman, Alex Kirkish, Brett Lenz, Christophe Rivet, Christopher McDaid, Phil Newman, Paige Peyton, Alan Spencer, Beverley Straube, Jack Williams (by distance learning) - congratulations to all! Recent jobs include Dr Katie Huntley who has been appointed to the post of Associate Professor in Ancient History at Boise State University in Idaho, US, and Dr Alex Livarda who is now Lecturer in Archaeobotany at the University of Nottingham.
