Joseph Lewis wins the CAA Nick Ryan Bursary Award

Congratulations to OOC DTP student, Joseph Lewis (Cambridge), who recently won the Nick Ryan Bursary Award from the Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology (CAA) annual conference for his paper entitled  “Towards a Coherent Framework for Explaining Known Historical Routes”

The Nick Ryan Bursary recognises the best student paper presented at the annual CAA conference (this year it was in Oxford).

This paper was based on a chapter of his OOC DTP-funded PhD dissertation in which he introduces a new framework for exploring the variability in how routes in the past traversed the landscape. Focusing on Roman roads in Britain, he demonstrates that Roman roads, although similar, were highly variable depending on the topography traversed.
