Dr Charlotte Potts


I joined Oxford as the Sybille Haynes lecturer in 2013 after an enjoyable career as a content developer for museum exhibitions and visitor attractions in New Zealand, Australia, Southeast Asia, and the United Kingdom, between degrees from Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), University College London, and the University of Oxford. These experiences have given me special interest in the stories we tell about the past through its material culture. I work on Etruscan, Latin, and Roman art and archaeology, particularly in religious contexts, and teach papers on Italy between the Iron Age and end of the Roman Empire.

Research Keywords:

Archaic Italy; Roman art and architecture; museum studies
