This week on the Peopling the Past blog we feature an interview with Alice Clinch, PhD candidate at Cornell University and Leverhulme Trust SAS Fellow. Alice discusses the questions she brings to the procurement, production, and use of various materials, from plaster to marble, bridging the art-science divide in approaching archaeological material.
In this blog post, we delve into the exciting research of Dr. Emily Holt, an environmental archaeologist, whose research uses isotope analysis of animal remains to understand patterns of human and animal mobility, economic structures, and political expansion in ancient Sardinia (c. 1700-1000 BCE).
In this next instalment of our ongoing graduate student features, we interview Justin Lorenzo Biggi, who just completed their Masters of Research at the University of Edinburgh. Justin shares his research on epigraphy as an ancient habit that conveyed ideas about gender, disability, and belonging in the ancient world.
In this post, we interview the editorial board of Rhea Classical Reviews, a new online, open access book review journal publishing reviews of new scholarship on the ancient Mediterranean world, whose aim is to create a more inclusive platform for emerging and alternative scholars to have their work reviewed.
