About our staff
Dr Tatjana Sandon
I am native of Vicenza in Italy, and attended the University of Padova, where I earned my Bachelor (2005) and Master's Degree (2008) in Greek and Roman Archaeology.
In 2012 I moved to Scotland and started a PhD in Classics at the University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Dr Ulrike Roth. My project focussed on the lives of Roman libertae (freedwomen), through the analysis of the epigraphic evidence. The results of my study are currently under review for a publication as a research monograph.
I was awarded with my PhD in 2017, and in September of the same year I joined Dr Roth as Research Assistant on the Leverhulme-funded project "The Child Face of Roman Slavery".
In 2019 I held additionally the position of Research Assistant on Dr Roth's project "The Roman Slave Community", funded by the University of Edinburgh.
