Ancient Spaces

We cannot properly understand history without a full appreciation of the spaces through which its actors moved, whether in the home or in the public sphere, and the ways in which they thought about and represented the spaces of their worlds.

Professor Scott’s research has ranged across the full range of literary, epigraphic and archaeological evidence, analysing both physical spaces and cultural constructs of space from North Africa to Greece and Roman Italy in order to demonstrate the many different ways in which spatial analysis can illuminate our understanding of Greek and Roman society and the ways in which these societies thought of, and interacted with, the spaces they occupied and created.
