Oxford Roman Economy Project University of Oxford

Research Assistants


Dr Tyler Franconi

Tyler Franconi completed his DPhil at the University of Oxford, where he investigated the nature of economic development within frontier regions of the Roman Empire, using the Rhine frontier as a case study. Before joining OXREP, he worked for two years on the English Landscapes and Identities Project as the Roman specialist, studying in particular the relationship between agrarian economies and landscape change. His current research focuses on the intersection of Roman economic and environmental history, seeking to understand how Roman expansion and intensification both shaped and was shaped by the surrounding landscape.  While working with OXREP, he will be developing a database of quantified amphorae assemblages in order to create a new tool for studying large ceramic datasets on a regional or supra-regional level.
