AHRC Research Leadership award for Myles Lavan

medium (2)Myles Lavan has won an AHRC Leadership Fellowship for his project Probabilistic Approaches to Uncertainty in Pre-Modern History. The project aims to demonstrate that probabilistic modes of analysis that are widely used by scientists, economists and others to manage uncertainty about the future can be powerful tools for historians grappling with uncertainty about the past. The Fellowship will cover two years of research leave to produce new, probabilistic studies of several problems in Roman history. It will also fund a series of workshops to bring scholars from different fields together discuss and develop probabilistic and other new approaches to uncertainty in history.
