Dr Samuel D. Gartland

Profile:

I am departmental lecturer in Greek History and lecturer in Ancient History at Corpus Christi and Christ Church. After a first degree in Ancient and Modern History at Corpus, I took a Masters and PhD in Classics at the University of Leeds. I thoroughly enjoy teaching, particularly Greek history and material culture, and was fortunate enough to be be given a Teaching Excellence Award by the university in 2013.

Research Keywords:

Greek history; Boiotia; Thebes; Geography; Pausanias

Research Interests:

I study the past communities and cultures of Greece with a particular interest in the interaction between geography and history. Much of my work has focused on Boiotia between the Archaic and Hellenistic periods, and I am currently preparing a book on fourth-century Boiotia for Pennsylvania University Press as well as an extended piece on Archaic Thebes for Oxford University Press.

Selected Publications:

'Thebes', in The Oxford History of the Archaic Greek World: Archaeohistories of 28 Sites, Sanctuaries, and Regions, P. Cartledge and P. Christensen (eds.), (Oxford: Oxford University Press, forthcoming).

Boiotia in the Fourth Century BC, (University of Pennsylvania Press, forthcoming).

'The electrum coinage of Thebes', Numismatic Chronicle 2013, (2013), 23-32.
