Short profile:

Rob completed his MA in Medieval Archaeology and PhD in Archaeology at the University of York. A self-confessed limes-phile (love of Roman frontiers, not the citrus fruit), Rob counter-balances this special fascination with an unhealthy enthusiam for finds identification in the North East. He can be found in the Great North Museum, Newcastle, generally garbed in the 'classic fashion' of the lumberjack.

Rob is currently part-time, spending the other half of his time working on a Roman frontiers project.
