Penelope's Weavings and Unpickings


I’m a lecturer in Roman history at the University of Leeds, where I specialise in urban space. Specifically, I analyse the relationship between the organisation and layout of Roman settlements, and the needs and priorities of the communities which lived in them. But my interests aren’t only confined to urban space. I’m passionately interested in all aspects of the ancient world, and its relationship with the modern world. This blog is my place for exploring those interactions – and anything else which occurs to me.

This is an example of a WordPress page, you could edit this to put information about yourself or your site so readers know where you are coming from. You can create as many pages like this one or sub-pages as you like and manage all of your content inside of WordPress.
