Prof. Andrew Wilson

Principal Investigator


Principal investigator & Professor of the Archaeology of the Roman Empire

My research interests include the economy of the Roman Empire, ancient technology, ancient water supply and usage, Roman North Africa and archaeological field survey and ancient settlement patterns.

In addition to the Endangered Archaeology Project, I co-direct, with Alan Bowman, the Oxford Roman Economy Project (OxREP) and, with Chris Howgego, the Coin Hoards of the Roman Empire project. I have excavated and studied ancient water systems in Italy, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Syria, and Cyprus, and am currently involved in excavations at Aphrodisias (Turkey) and Utica (Tunisia).
