Alex Croom has published widely on Roman archaeological finds, especially pottery and costumes. She manages post-excavation research and artifact study projects, including large-scale research projects such as the Hadrian’s Wall ceramic database.
What's your role in archaeology today?
I look after the archaeology collections of four museums within Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums. As we look after two Roman Forts, much of the material is Roman in date, but the rest covers everything from ancient Egypt to industrial archaeology of the late nineteenth century! Needless to say, I am particularly interested in the Romans, and love trying to find out more about their every-day lives.
