Eleri CousinsLecturer in Roman HistoryUniversity of Lancaster

I work on the role played by ritual and religion (broadly defined!) in the construction of provincial society and identity in the Roman Empire, in particular Britain, Gaul, and Germany. My research sits at the intersection of ancient history and archaeology, and I am especially interested in the connections between ritual and landscape in the Roman world. My previous work focused on the Roman sanctuary at Bath and my first book, The Sanctuary at Bath in the Roman Empire, was published by Cambridge University Press in January 2020. My current major research project explores religious practices in the Alps during the Roman period. In this work, I combine an emphasis on the lived experience of ancient religion with archaeological approaches to landscape to explore how Alpine populations used, and were affected by, the mountains in their engagement with the divine. In addition to this project, I also have active research interests in the dynamics of religion and society on Hadrian’s Wall, in Roman provincial art, and in 18th and 19th century antiquarian culture in Britain.

Maureen CarrollChair in Roman ArchaeologyUniversity of York

Maureen is a Roman archaeologist whose key research interests are Roman burial practices, funerary commemoration, and Roman childhood and family studies. She headed up the British team participating in a large EU-funded multi-national project (DressID) on Roman textiles and clothing, her focus being on dress and identity in funerary portraits on the Rhine and Danube frontiers. A further area of interest is the topic of Roman garden archaeology, on which she has published extensively. More recently, Maureen has studied the role of women in votive religion in early Roman Italy.

She has directed excavations in Germany, Italy, Tunisia, and Britain. Her current fieldwork project, funded by the British Academy/Leverhulme Trust, the Roman Society, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), and the Rust Family Foundation, is the exploration of a Roman rural estate in imperial possession from the first to the third century A.D. at Vagnari in Puglia (Italy).
