Christopher Lillington-Martin undertook postgraduate research, specialising in Late Antiquity, at Oxford and Reading Universities after studying at Wales (Swansea), Barcelona and Bristol Universities. He has published Procopius-related research on Dara and Rome, Belisarius and the Goths. He participates in late antique archaeology projects (e.g. Pollentia, Mallorca), is a member of the Oxford Centre for Late Antiquity, Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and a Visitor of Pembroke College, Cambridge. Elodie Turquois completed a DPhil in Classical Languages and Literature at St Hugh's College, Oxford, in 2013 after receiving an undergraduate degree in Classics at the Sorbonne in Paris. Her dissertation was a typology of the material and the visual across all of Procopius' works. Her work focuses on the representation of material culture in literature, literary theory and reception, rhetoric and technical writing.
