Current Projects

I will be accepting graduate students to work with me on my current research projects, all of which are based on the archaeology of Punic and/or Roman North Africa and require proficiency in reading French:

  1. the economic and cultural ramifications of Roman pottery from Leptiminus, Tunisia;
  2. cultural identity as expressed on votive stelae from sanctuaries (a Latin reading ability would be beneficial for this topic); and terracotta figurines as offerings at sanctuaries and cemeteries.
