Dr. Suzanne O'Neill

I received both my B.A. and Ph.D. from Trinity College Dublin.

Research Interests

Greek Archaeology and History; The Politics of Classical Heritage (Greek and Roman); Reception and Cultural Biography Studies.

Current Research:

I am currently writing a book entitled ‘Iktinos’ Temple at Bassai: Its Reception in Modern Times’. This book will examine the modern life history of this important UNESCO-listed Greek Classical temple and its marble frieze. The frieze was purchased by the British Government in 1814 and placed in the British Museum.
