My research explores the relationship between Meroitic Sudan and the Greco-Roman world. It focuses upon the contact zone between the two territories which lay south of Elephantine Island at Aswan, but also the perception of the region and its peoples as recorded in art and literature. This has far reaching effects, which I explore in teaching "The Romans in Britain" for Advanced Studies in England, where I investigate the economic connections between Boudicca's revolt and the Emperor Nero's exploration of the Upper Nile, as well as the relevance of the Cult of Isis in the wider ancient pantheon. As a further layer to my research, I remain fascinated by the contemporary history of investigation into the ancient past of Egypt and Sudan, working with archive material held in collections across North Africa, Europe and America.
