Dr Abigail Moffett
Dr Abigail Moffett is a Claude Leon Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Her postdoctoral research work, entitled ‘Global connections, local interactions; tracing the flow of commodities in southern Africa over two millennia’ utilises a biographical lens to explore the value of trade goods in early global trade networks. This project aligns with a broader research focus on the political economy of precolonial communities in southern Africa, from the organisation of craft production, regional and coastal-interior trade networks and the construction of value, through to the exchange and consumption of locally made and imported objects.

Dr Nicholas Zachariou
My interests lie in the interface between the colonial and pre-colonial spheres, the associated milieu or bricolage, and how each interacts and influences the other, particularly through representation, landscape use and material culture. My PhD thesis was titled ‘A Biography of Land and Landscape: the Archaeology of the Sak River Mission Station 1799-1900’, and addresses the biographies of archaeological sites in the semi-desert Karoo region of South Africa through visual and written text, landscape and archaeology.
