Steve Roskams joined the staff in 1983 after spending ten years in rescue archaeology, directing excavations in Carthage in Tunisia and in the City of London, notably the large excavations at Billingsgate.
He is interested in all aspects of urban archaeology, both of theory and of practice. The former involve the construction, from a Marxist perspective, of frameworks for understanding the Roman to medieval transitions; the latter the development of excavation methods and analysis to aid the interpretation of complex urban sequences.
Publications include site reports and synthetic articles on London, overviews of Roman and medieval York, and books on fieldwork methodologies and stratigraphic analysis.
At the present time he is completing the publication of a major research project focused on the Roman town of Lambaesis in Algeria.
