OUR LECTURERS:

Dr. Virginia Webb

Virginia studied Classical Archaeology at the University of Oxford under Professor John Boardman. She gained her DPhil, which was published as 'Archaic Greek Faience' (Warminster 1978). This is a comprehensive study of Late Period Faience objects from the Greek world and their links with Egyptian faience, culture and technology. She has published a large number of articles on related topics. She is now working on the Naukratis project at the British Museum, and is also involved cataloguing newly excavated faience finds from both the Heraion on Samos, and the Aphrodite Temple sanctuary at Miletus. Virginia is also commissioned to contribute to a joint Greek and International project to assemble all Egyptian and Egyptianising objects from Greece.

Dr. Alex Loktionov

Alex is an Egyptologist with a particular interest in ancient Egyptian justice of the 3rd and 2nd millennia BCE. He has a BA in Archaeology & Anthropology from Selwyn College, Cambridge, and an MPhil in Egyptology from St. John's College, Cambridge. His PhD was undertaken at Robinson College, Cambridge, where he investigated methods of reconstructing the legal system of Ancient Egypt from the Old to the Middle Kingdom through a mixture of textual, ethnographic and wider theoretical approaches. He currently co-ordinates two University modules in Egyptian and Akkadian language, and is a Fellow of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research. Before coming to Christ’s in October 2019, Alex was a Teaching Associate in Egyptian language at the Department of Archaeology, a bye-fellow of Selwyn College, and an AHRC Fellow at the Library of Congress, Washington, DC.
