On Monday, 24 October 2022, Dr. Thomas J. Derrick will present his work on ancient Roman perfumery with a talk entitled: “Archaeological approaches to the consumption of perfumes, cosmetics, and medicaments in Rome’s north-western provinces.”
The talk will be framed around his doctoral work on unguentaria from Roman Britain but will also focus on the heuristic value of studying contextualised small glass containers. Derrick explores the potential for material culture centred approaches to socio-corporeal behaviours throughout the Roman Empire.
The event will be held in person and online: in person, at the Alchemies of Scent lab in Prague; online, via zoom. Details below.
