Dr Ferréol Salomon is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Archaeology at the University of Southampton.
I joined the department of Archaeology at the University of Southampton as a research fellow in 2013, after completing a PhD in geoarchaeology / geomorphology at the University of Lyon (Lyon 2, France). My doctoral research focused on the study of the Tiber delta in Italy. I developed research on the Rome’s maritime façade and the fluvial-canal system of the Roman harbours of Portus and Ostia.
I am currently involved in the PortusLimen Project, coordinating a database on the geoarchaeology of the Roman harbours and on the geomorphology of Mediterranean coastal landscapes. Since my PhD, I have extended my interests to other study areas. I’m specifically involved in the fieldwork of the harbours of Tarragona, Baelo Claudia (Spain), Pozzuoli, but I’m still working on Ostia and Portus (Italy).
