Dr Rob Wiseman is an archaeologist at the University of Cambridge. In this talk, Rob discusses some of his current research into Roman decapitation burials, and the political events of the 3rd century AD which might have produced this phenomenon in British archaeology.

Archaeology is Rob’s fourth career, after several decades’ experience in communication research, running his own research consultancy, and a pan-European policy role in the pharmaceutical industry. His initial degree was in mathematics, and for his doctorate he studied the history of ideas about communication.

Rob identified as a gay man, an Australian, and a coffee lover.
