Something about ourselves
I am professor emeritus of Classical Archaeology at Amsterdam Free University. Apart from having studied Roman coin finds in the Netherlands, I have done research in Greece and particularly in Central and Southern Italy, my main subjects of interest being Roman architecture and urbanization.
