About Matthew Winter
I study the archaeology and history of the ancient Mediterranean, with a chronological focus on the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Though I primarily am interested in the cultural mixing pot that was the Eastern Mediterranean, I take a comprehensive approach to studying imperial systems that spanned continents. I am especially interested in ideas of cultural exchange and the fluidity of ideas that moved through different hands and were adopted or adapted by different groups in a number of forms, in anything from expressions of identity through religious iconography to the use of new technologies.
Strong secondary interests include the archaeology of Etruria, as well as the archaeology and history of the Roman Republic and Classical Greece.
