About Lacey Wallace

I joined the School of History and Heritage in 2016 as a Lecturer in Roman History and Material Culture. I’m a field archaeologist with research specialisation in the later Iron Age and Roman period in northwest Europe, especially Roman Britain. My past and current research has focussed on the origins of urbanism, rural settlement, social landscapes, and digital methods in archaeology. My current project (The Canterbury Hinterland Project) is a landscape survey examining the creation of social landscapes, rural (dis)continuity, and connectivity across rural space and with urban centres. Before coming to the University of Lincoln, I was a Research Associate in Roman Archaeology at the University of Cambridge (2013-2016) working primarily on landscape and rural settlement in Iron Age and Roman east Yorkshire. I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge in 2011 on the origins of urbanism in Roman London.
