Mr Tony Curtis BA (Hons) MA

Research student

School of History, Archaeology and Religion


I'm a mature student with a British forces (Army) history and about 30 years of experiance in computing and financial sectors. 

I'm interested in all things military, though primarilly ancient with a focus on Greek, Roman and Punic warfare. I'm particularly fascinated how new technologies and scientific understanding can help illuminate and challenge our previous understanding of the ancient world, including digital technologies such as mapping, geoscience, use of survey drones and virtual reality.


Research Interests:

Warefare in the Ancient World
Carthagininian history
Phycology of ancient combatants
Digital classics
Use of topographical science in classical studies
Septimius Severus and Rome's Scottish campaigns


2016 - Open University BA (Open)

2019 - Open University MA in Classical Studies, Thesis Title - Was battle-stress a condition that affected the Roman soldier during the opening stages of the 2nd Punc War (218-2-1 BCE)?
