Eleanor Scott (archaeologist)
Dr Eleanor Scott
|Born||8 July 1960|
|Alma mater||University of Newcastle|
|Thesis||Aspects of the Roman Villa as a Form of British Settlement (1988)|
Scott is from the Isle of Man. She graduated from Newcastle University in 1982, subsequently completing her PhD on Romano-British villas funded by the Isle of Man. Scott has published several monographs and contributed many articles to journals in addition to contributing to public outreach programmes such as the Day of Archaeology.
Scott founded the Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference in 1991. TRAC was founded as a response of criticism in the late 1980s of a lack of theoretical basis in Roman archaeology and the conference has since become an annual series. The progression of scholars participating in these conferences into academia and museums has consequently positioned theory at the core of Roman Archaeology and changed the direction of the discipline.
