Pleiades has a new associate editor: Elizabeth Robinson

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the Pleiades editorial board, to welcome Elizabeth Robinson as our newest Associate Editor.

Elizabeth’s primary research interests focus on the cultural and physical landscapes of Italy in the first millennium BCE, and the nature of Roman interactions with the other inhabitants of the Italian peninsula in this period. Her current interest is in central-southern Italy, where she is exploring the nature of urbanism in this area in the pre-Roman and Roman periods. She recently edited a JRA Supplement on this theme.

She has had ample experience using GIS and digital mapping techniques in the field in Italy. She also spent two years as the Acting Director of the Ancient World Mapping Center at UNC, where she helped to create and publish a new series of seven classroom maps of the ancient world, currently available from Routledge as part of their “Wall Maps for the Ancient World” series.

Her fieldwork experience includes a season of excavation at Paestum, two seasons of fieldwork with the Upper Simeto Valley Survey, several seasons of fieldwork with the Gabii Project, and two campaigns as director of the resurvey of previously discovered archaeological sites in the area surrounding Larinum. As a staff member for the Upper Simeto Valley Survey, she was in charge of collection, management and interpretation of GPS and GIS data. She currently serves as a staff member on the topography team for the Gabii Project. She is also a team member on the Gabii Goes Digital project.
