Email email@example.com Website Mark Letteney CV Bio/Description Mark Letteney is an archaeologist and historian working in the history of incarceration, the history of epistemology, and the archaeology of military occupation. He is currently an ACLS Emerging Voices Postdoctoral Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Mark serves as a co-director of the Solomon’s Pools Archaeological Project and assistant director on the excavation of the Roman 6th Legion at Legio, Israel, where he directs excavations in the legionary amphitheater. His forthcoming monograph, titled Christianizing Knowledge: Intellectual Transformation and the Beginning of Late Antiquity, explores how imperial Christianity changed the way that ancient scholars in “secular” disciplines made arguments in the fourth and fifth centuries CE, and the reflection of new scholastic practices in manuscripts from the Theodosian Age. His second book, Ancient Mediterranean Incarceration (co-authored with Matthew Larsen) brings together documentary, archaeological, literary, and visual evidence to present a synthetic account of the ideology and experience of incarceration in the ancient Mediterranean basin, from 300 BCE–600 CE.
