June 27, 2023 by Department of Classics

Assistant Professor Fae Amiro has accepted a two-year postdoctoral position, beginning this coming August, to work with Dr. Elizabeth Greene, Canadian Research Chair in Roman Archaeology and Associate Professor of Classics at the University of Western Ontario, conducting research at the Vindolanda Archaeological Leather Project.

Vindolanda, a Roman-period military fort and settlement located near Hadrian’s wall in northern England settled around 85 CE, contains the largest collection of archaeological leather from a single site and the most comprehensive body of leather material from any Roman site in the Empire, with more than seven thousand leather objects in its museums. The research project is a joint endeavour between the University of Western Ontario and The Vindolanda Trust in the United Kingdom.

Congratulations, Fae!
