  • About

    Lisa Nevett's area of expertise is Greek and Roman antiquity with particular interest in material culture as a source for social history. To date, her research has focused on domestic architecture, using the construction, decoration and articulation of space within Greek and Roman houses to shed light on broader social questions. These include the development of the Greek city, relationships between men and women within Greek and Roman households, and patterns of interaction between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples at the fringes of the Greek and Roman worlds. She has been involved in archaeological field projects in Greece, Turkey, Libya and Britain.
