The director and principal researcher of the I.Sicily project is Dr Jonathan Prag, Associate Professor in Ancient History in the Faculty of Classics at the University of Oxford, and a Fellow of Merton College. Jonathan has been working on Ancient Sicily since he started work on a PhD on Roman Sicily in 1999 at the University of London, and has published a number of articles on the history, historiography, and epigraphy of Hellenistic and Roman Sicily. He currently looks for any excuse he can find to get back out to Sicily.
