Dr Nichole Sheldrick



My main research interests include Roman North Africa

My main research interests include Roman North Africa, the frontiers of the Roman Empire, the archaeology, art, and architecture of contact, colonialism, and imperialism, and archaeological survey and remote sensing techniques and methodologies. I recently completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford (2016), with a thesis focussed on rural architecture and settlement in Tripolitania (north-western Libya and southern Tunisia) between the 1st c. BC and the 7th c. AD.

Between 2012 and 2016 I have co-supervised excavations in a Roman-period house at the site of Utica (Tunisia) as part of the Tunisian-British Utica Project, and in 2016 I also joined the Middle Draa Project, taking part in wide-ranging survey in the Draa valley of southern Morocco. Before coming to Oxford, I worked extensively in Ontario, Canada as a commercial archaeologist on a variety of both prehistoric and Euro-Canadian sites.
