Andrea BrockLeverhulme Early Career FellowUniversity of St Andrews

I am an environmental archaeologist with particular expertise in historical ecology and palaeolandscape reconstruction. My current work integrates the literary record on early Rome with geoarchaeological evidence, in order to produce an environmental and topographical reconstruction of Rome’s river valley. I have been involved in several archaeological excavations and surveys, most recently in Rome. As director of the Forum Boarium Project, I have conducted a coring survey of the city’s original river harbour and harbour sanctuary. Among other findings, my research is revealing new insights on the role of environmental stress—in particular frequent flooding and rapid sedimentation in the river valley—on Rome’s urbanization process, as well as the scale of landscape change that occurred alongside urban development.

I also serve as Director of the Centre for Ancient Environmental Studies: https://caes.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/

Anysia MerakosPhD CandidateUC Berkeley

I work chiefly on Late Antique intellectual history and the material culture of the later Roman Empire. My research focuses on the power of images and perceptions of piety and the body in Late Antique thought. I am primarily interested in manifestations of holiness in the bodies, portraits, and biographies of pagan and Christian holy men and women. I have recently developed an interest in the relationship between children and parents in Late Antiquity and the role of the family in Christian asceticism. Additional areas of interest include urban topography, the reception of classical texts (Homer especially) in the later Roman and Byzantine empires, and Greek folk culture.
