Adam Parker
BA(hons) MA PhD ACIfA

Hi, I’m Adam – a professional archaeologist, museum curator, and public history writer.

I have a PhD in Classical Studies from the Open University and over ten years professional experience in the museum sector. I specialise in the identification and interpretation of Roman material culture and Roman Yorkshire, as well as researching ancient magic, ritual, and religion. My PhD thesis was titled The Materiality of Magic in Roman Britain and aimed to investigate the archaeological evidence for magic in the Roman Britain. I have authored two books on Roman archaeology, edited two collections papers, and contributed book chapters and articles to peer reviewed journals. I have additional research interests in amulets and folklore, Whitby jet, materiality and sensory archaeology.
