Research Title: The Village People – Rural Life in the Countryside of Hellenistic and Imperial Sagalassos
After finishing his PhD in 2012 on tableware in the Roman East at the University of Leuven, Dr. Willet started in 2013 as a post-doctoral researcher at Leiden University on the ERC project “Empire of 2000 Cities: Urban Networks and Economic Integration in the Roman Empire.” He studied the Roman cities and towns of Asia Minor (The Geography of Urbanism in Roman Asia Minor, 2019, Sheffield). In this work, the village or small town clearly emerged as a settlement type that was of major importance in life during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. As co-director of the intensive survey of the Sagalassos Archaeological Research project, his team discovered substantial (monumental) remains of village life around the city of Sagalassos. In his research at ANAMED, these remains are studied with the aim of reconstructing the story of village life in Hellenistic and Roman Asia Minor.
