About my Research

Having almost completed my 2nd year of PhD research I am currently working hard to complete my data collection in order to immerse myself in the depth of data analysis. Most of my data was collected during two extended research trips to Milan where I was able to browse the local libraries. First preliminary results suggest that the analysis will show interesting patterns in material culture that will give us a better insight about how the Roman conquest impacted on less urbanised and more marginal areas.
