Dr Simon Corcoran

My predominant area of research is Roman legal history in the late antique and early mediaeval periods, conducted under the aegis of the Projet Volterra, on which I have worked since 1999. This has included the recent (2010) identification of fragments of the lost Gregorian Code. I also have a strong interest in Diocletian and the era of the tetrarchs, as well as in Greek and Latin epigraphy. My principal undergraduate teaching has been about ancient slavery, with some MA teaching on Roman and Byzantine legal history.

Recent significant publications include:
