PhD Research

This thesis centres on the concept of social change and continuity.  The major consideration of this research is if and how outlooks upon the world may have changed for those inhabiting the Severn Estuary during the late Iron Age and Romano-British period.  Using the Severn Estuary in the Roman period as the focus I hope to show how identities were played out through material objects at a time where the interaction of different cultures meant that identity and meaning were never static or simple but fluid and complex.
