Duncan Keenan-Jones

Lecturer in Classical Archaeology, University of Manchester

Dr Keenan-Jones’ research focuses on the relationship between environment, technology and society in the Roman world and he has current projects on the role of climate in Roman history and on using past water management to inform current practice around the world. Before taking up the position at UQ, he held postdoctoral positions at the Collegium de Lyon (2017-2018), University of Glasgow (2014 - 2017) and the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (2011-2014). Duncan's doctoral thesis (Macquarie University, 2011), investigated the creation and social and environmental impacts of a unique, regional water supply network. Before his Masters of Arts in Ancient History (Macquarie, 2006), Duncan completed an honours degree in chemical engineering.
