Louise Schofield

Louise Schofield, recently appointed Visiting Professor of Archaeology at the American University of Rome, is an archaeologist specialising in the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean world. Formerly Curator of Greek Bronze Age and Geometric Antiquities at the British Museum, her book The Mycenaeans was co-published by the British Museum and the Getty Museum in 2007 and she made a television programme on the Trojan War with the BBC Horizon team. Leaving the British Museum in the year 2000, she now works on large-scale archaeological projects - including (for seven years) at Butrint (Albania). The statue of a Roman Emperor that she found in her trench there in 2005 now has pride of place in the museum at the site.
