I read Archaeology at the universities of Tübingen, Freiburg i.Br. and Oxford (Institute of Archaeology and Keble College). After completing my Master of Studies and Doctorate at Oxford, I taught at the School of Archaeology & Ancient History at Leicester from 1999 to 2001. I then returned as a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow to Oxford (2001-2003). Since 2003 I have been a Lecturer in Classical Archaeology at Edinburgh University’s School of History, Classics & Archaeology, since 2006/07 a Reader and since 2008 a Professor.
