Dr Jane Draycott

  • Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Research Fellow in Classics: Ancient Science & Technology (Classics)

Research interests

My current research project focuses on prostheses in ancient Greece, Rome and the neighbouring civilisations. Related to this, I organised a 'Prostheses in Antiquity' workshop that was funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Classical Association in 2015 (the edited volume of conference proceedings is forthcoming from Routledge), and a 'Medical Machines in Antiquity' workshop in 2017.

I am also part of a joint research project  focusing on skincare in antiquity with academics from the University of Oxford and Keele University, and curators and archivists from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society's Museum and Library and the Boots Archive, that is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of its Science in Culture: the Lived Environment theme.

Supervision

I am particularly interested in supervising research students working in the areas of impairment and disability in antiquity, the history and archaeology of medicine, and the history and archaeology of science and technology.
