Homepage - SSCIP I was honoured to give the first Biannual Guest Lecture for the Society for the Study of Childhood in the Past (SSCIP) in May 2021. In my talk “Gendered Childhood Diets” I discuss some of my doctoral research, and how we can use changes in diets to learn more about changing social roles in the Roman Empire .
