This initial website documents the Stoneworking in the Roman World project which started in July 2011. You will be able to follow the project via our blog posts as we assemble images, interviews and data in collaboration with the sculptor, Peter Rockwell, for the final website. In addition over the course of the next two years we will be holding various events on stone-related themes in which we hope you will participate.
This research project is investigating the processes involved in the carving of stone during the Roman period. It is being undertaken by a team of researchers from King’s College London and is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
