Alice’s knowledge in Antiquities is founded on an undergraduate degree in Classics at Newnham College, Cambridge. Specialising in Ancient History of Art, Alice’s particular focus was on the material culture of the Roman world and its relationship with wider ancient civilisations. Cambridge was followed by an M.A. at the Courtauld Institute in Byzantine Art, broadening her historical academic range. Alice’s academic career has included a period in the world of commercial antiquities dealing, which involved developing skills in sales, research and appraisal of objects.
