Assistant Professor of Archaeology and the Ancient World and Classics


Candace Rice is an archaeologist whose research focuses on Mediterranean maritime trade and economic development during the Roman period. She is particularly interested in exploring what the archaeological record reveals about the ways in which connectivity changed the nature of the Roman economy through enhanced supra-regional integration and specialized local economic development. She currently co-directs fieldwork in Croatia, Italy, and Türkiye. 

She holds an M.Phil in Classical Archaeology and a D.Phil in Archaeology from the University of Oxford. Before moving to Brown, she held faculty positions at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Alberta. She also spent a year as a Senior Fellow at the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations at Koç University in Istanbul.
