Paul Joseph De Mola, FRGS, is a First Class Honours graduate of the School of Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Leicester in England. He plans to pursue an MA in Classics, followed by doctoral research, with a goal to make a career teaching at the college-preparatory school level. His principle areas of interest are Roman Republican, late Western Imperial Roman and early Barbarian history and archaeology, as well as Classical philology. His dissertation was on the impact foreign martial traditions had on Roman military tactics and unit structure.
He has broad secondary interests in the archaeology of Early Bronze Age Mesopotamia and the political history of Middle Kingdom-Second Intermediate Period Ancient Egypt, as well as general interests in both Classic and Postclassic Mesoamerican sociopolitical structures.
