Dr Samuel Gartland

Lecturer in Ancient History


BA, MA, PhD.

Undergraduate Teaching

I teach all Greek history papers in Ancient and Modern History, Classical Archaeology and Ancient History, and LitHum.

Research Interests

My research is involved with finding new approaches to the study of ancient history, with particular interests in experiences of marginalisation and subordination, as well as a focus on the role that space and senses had in affecting behaviour in ancient Greece. Much of my work has been based in Central Greece, with Boiotia and Thebes providing much of the interest.

Publications include:
