Professor David Braund MA PhD (Cantab.) DLitt. (Batumi)

My research interests lie in Greek and Roman history, archaeology and literature, especially historiography. My particular specialism is Greek and Roman involvement in the Black Sea region, though my work and publications range as far as Roman Britain.

In recent years I have written mostly on religion and theatre in the ancient Black Sea region in volumes for CUP (2018 monograph; essays written and edited with Edith Hall and Rosie Wyles in 2019). My most recent book is Environment and habitation around the Black Sea, written and edited with Vladimir Stolba and Ulrike Peter for De Gruyter (Berlin).

Currently I am completing a monograph on Amazons in Greek culture for publication in 2022, entitled Amazons: the history behind the legend, Cambridge UP .
