Roman metalwork hoards in Britain

Applications are invited for a fully funded three-year AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award between the School of Archaeology & Ancient History, University of Leicester and the British Museum. The lead supervisors for the project are Prof. David Mattingly (Leicester) and Dr Roger Bland (British Museum), with additional support from Prof. Colin Haselgrove (Leicester) and Dr Richard Hobbs (British Museum). The project will also complement existing projects, especially the British Museum and University of Leicester’s Hoards project http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/archaeology/research/projects/hoarding-in-iron-age-and-roman-britain, which focuses on Iron Age and Roman coin hoards, and the CDP on Iron Age metalwork hoards.

The aim of the PhD project is an integrated study of Roman metalwork hoards from Britain, both in museum collections and newly recorded through the Portable Antiquities Scheme. This project will examine hoards with metalwork (precious and base) as their primary component, thus excluding coin hoards but including mixed hoards of metalwork and coin.

The AHRC Studentship is tenable for a maximum of three years, commencing October 2015. It will cover home fees and a stipend (£13,863 per year in 2014/15) for UK students or EU students who have lived in the UK for 3 years prior to the award. For detailed terms and conditions see the RCUK Student Funding Guide http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/Student-Funding-Guide.pdf

The student will study Roman hoards in the Department of Britain, Europe and Prehistory at the British Museum, and in other relevant museums, and will attend training and other activities that the British Museum organises for holders of Collaborative Doctoral Awards. The student is also encouraged to spend some time working as a volunteer with the British Museum to gain additional work experience. The British Museum will provide additional financial support to cover the student’s costs in researching at the Museum and carrying out other research of up to £1000 a year.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 16 April 2015; interviews will be held on 18 May in Leicester.

The History of the Photographic Picture Postcard

 

The Department of History, University of Nottingham, in partnership with the British Museum, invites applications from suitably qualified UK/EU candidates for a full-time 3-year Collaborative Doctoral Award, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council, to conduct research on the theme: ‘Site-Seeing: Postcards of the Middle East & the Visual Construction of Place, 1890s to 1990s’.

The PhD project will examine the role of the picture postcard as a crucial technology of 20th-century visual culture and modern place-making.  It will draw on the Museum’s expansive collection of postcards of the Middle East, spanning colonial and postcolonial periods,
and analyse the production and use of these postcards both as visual media and as material objects.

The Studentship will start on 1 October 2015. For further details of the award, the research project and procedures for applying, please click here.
