Student Supervision

A terrible photo of me supervising PhD geophysical fieldwork at Kinneil, on the Antonine Wall in ScotlandIn addition to taught courses, I also provide supervision for undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations/theses in both Archaeology and History. I am currently the primary supervisor for a fully-funded PhD student (Nick Hannon) on the “Hidden Landscape of a Roman Frontier Project,” in collaboration with (and jointly funded by) Historic Environment Scotland. Starting in January 2017, I am also the primary supervisor for an MA by Research student (Jessica Petrillo) in History on a bilingual critical assessment of public vs private heritage management at Pompeii.

A selection of undergraduate dissertation titles that I have successfully supervised include:

  • A Critical Evaluation of ‘Romanisation’ in the Northwest Provinces of the Roman Empire
  • The Degradation of Pompeii and the Struggles of Herculaneum
  • Civil-Military Cooperation (CIMIC), Cultural Property Protection (CPP), and the Heritage Interface
  • To What Extent was the Collapse of the Western Roman Empire caused by Economic Deterioration?
  • Marcus Aurelius: The Philosophical Emperor
