Dr Peter Crawford

Teaching Fellow


Peter Crawford was first introduced to Ancient History during his time at Dalriada School before working his way through undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral studies in the subject at Queen's University Belfast, culminating in his PhD thesis on 'Late Roman Recruiting Practices' in 2011.

He is the author of War of the Three Gods: Romans, Persians and the Rise of Islam and Constantius II: Usurpers, Eunuchs and the Antichrist. He is currently working on, amongst other things, a biography of the fifth century emperor Zeno.

Before arriving at UCL, he served as a Teaching Assistant at Queen's University and is the co-founder of the Classical Association in Northern Ireland, with all the organising, planning and executing that such positions entail.
