Welcome to my pages. I am a Professor in the History Department at Indiana University of Pennsylvania where I teach ancient history – broadly defined. My area of research looks at trade and commerce in Late Antiquity, in particular the Eastern Mediterranean. My research focused on the identification and analysis of Roman and Late Roman Ceramics. I am currently co-directing an archaeology project on Cyprus (the Pyla-Koutsopetria Archaeological Project) and analyzing Roman ceramics for several other projects on Cyprus.
