Feel like a fully-funded PhD?

  • Posted On: 3 June 2018

Newcastle University is offering a PhD opportunity to study Roman Frontier Studies and Numismatics.

The collaborative PhD offers 100% of UK/EU tuition fees plus an annual stipend and will explore the distribution, use and function of Roman coinage in the Hadrian’s Wall frontier zone. Research will be based on a World Heritage Site and seek to address some of the questions raised in the ‘Frontiers of Knowledge’ research framework by using published and unpublished coin data from excavations, hoards and casual finds. The work will lead to a publically accessible database of coins and improved understanding of numismatic collections in the frontier zone.
