39: Lee Graña (University of Reading) Coffee and Circuses

    • History

Lee joins David to discuss his PhD thesis on fishing in Roman Britain, spending the summer in excavating in Pompeii, and how for both them studying for their MAs was a big turning-point. There's also plenty on Lee's other major area of research: experimental archaeology. He chats about how he got interested in this avenue of research, bringing people together for a TRAC workshop on the subject, how it's a great tool for public engagement, but also how it doesn't necessarily get the recognition it deserves in academia.
