Congratulations to Anouk Vermeulen

cl_pg-vermeulen-150x226Congratulations to Anouk Vermeulen on a successful PhD viva this week. Anouk’s dissertation is entitled “Divided Lands, Divided Peoples? A Reconsideration of Roman Land Division, its Practices, Purposes, and Effects”, and discusses the practice of dividing land into roughly regular plots, which were then assigned to farmers – a distinctly Roman way of settling communities and redefining the landscape.

Anouk’s thesis is an original contribution to this important field of studies, developing a methodology that combines landscape archaeology, digital technologies, and spatial analysis in a new approach that allowed her to call into discussion traditional interpretations of Roman settlements.
