Dr Thomas Mannack

People type:

I studied Classical Archaeology, Ancient History, and Pre-History at Heidelberg, Oxford, and Kiel, where I submitted my doctoral thesis on Beazley’s Later and Latest Mannerists. I have been working at the Beazley Archive, Oxford, since 1986, where I am in charge of the Archive’s database of Greek figure-decorated pottery, and have taught Greek and Roman Art for 25 years. I am Titular Reader in Classical Iconography since 2006, Lecturer in Classical Archaeology since 2007 and director of the British Academy’s Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum Project.
