Rowan Munnery is a current PhD candidate in the School of Classics at the University of St Andrews, supervised by Professor Rebecca Sweetman and Dr Carlos Machado. He is funded by the Scottish Graduate School for the arts and Humanities Doctoral Training Programme. His project focuses on utilising social network analysis approaches with underwater archaeological data in order to interrogate mobilities and interconnectivity in the maritime world of late antiquity. 

Rowan holds a MA (Hons) in Ancient History and Archaeology from the University of St Andrews (2015-2019) and completed a MLitt at the same institution (2019-2020). Under the supervision of Dr Carlos Machado his MLitt dissertation examined the evidence for pre-Islamic trade across the Sahara region and connected it to climatic changes and the growth of urbanism in the Sahel.

His research interests lie in the development, change, and decline of networks of interaction in late antiquity, as well as socially embedded economic structures, maritime archaeology, and the spatiality of everyday life.
