Professor Graham Oliver

Graham undertook both his undergraduate and doctoral studies in Classics at Oxford University before moving to The University of Liverpool in 1994, where he taught until 2013. He then moved to Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island where he is Professor of Classics, Chair of Classics and Professor of History.

Fluent in French and Greek, Graham has lectured in the USA and throughout Europe to audiences of all ages. He most recently produced a book on ancient and modern war memorials and is an expert in Greek inscriptions: he was a key part of the team that made a new study of the queen of inscriptions, the Res Gestae (Achievements) of the Divine Augustus, inscribed on the Temple of Rome and Augustus at Ankara in Turkey. He believes passionately in bringing history and the ancient world to life, and has worked and travelled extensively in the Mediterranean and led numerous groups around the region’s archaeological sites. We are delighted Graham can share his knowledge and enthusiasm with our guests.
