I provided a link to my PhD thesis early on in the course in Week One on the Find of the Week – amphora sherds from Leptis Magna step. In addition to this step I thought you might be interested to follow through from other steps to my thesis and vice versa. The “direct links” *should* take you to specific pages in the thesis, but the behaviour varies according to your device and setup. You can access the whole thesis in any case from the reference below.
I would welcome your comments on the FL platform or via this blog post.
