I’m Dr Andrew Tibbs, a Roman archaeologist from Durham University who specialises in the Roman occupation of North Britain and Scotland, and using remote sensing technologies (such as aerial imagery, LiDAR, and GIS) as part of my research. As well as being an academic, I have an extensive background in communications, public relations and media engagement having spent over 17 years working in the heritage, charitable and higher education sectors.

I regularly provide advice and support to those working in heritage and archaeology sectors, and am happy to look at working on new projects. Most recently, I have contributed to regional research frameworks, provided historical consultancy for film projects, and I work with the media on a regular basis. I can be contacted via my twitter account @andrewtibbs or via email: andrewtibbs ‘at’ gmail .com

I’m also the voice behind @RomanScotland, where I tweet about different aspects and information on Roman activity in Scotland and occasionally elsewhere. You can see the latest tweets below or here.

My book, Beyond the Empire: A Guide to the Roman Remains in Scotland contains details of Scotland’s 300+ Roman sites and is available to purchase from independent bookshops, Amazon, or direct from the publishers here.

Though Scotland was never successfully conquered by the Roman Empire, the lands north of Hadrian’s Wall nonetheless include many Roman sites that bear witness to Rome’s attempts to impose her will over the whole of Britain. Beyond the Empire offers a complete listing of all 330 known Roman sites in Scotland, including location maps, details of notable archaeological finds, what is visible on the ground, and how to visit them.
