Lisa joins David to discuss her work on plant remains from the late Iron Age to Roman periods. As Lisa explains, the growth in archaeobotany in recent years has given us a better understanding of not only what people in the Roman World ate, but how healthy they were, how different regions were connected, and what rural life was like beyond villa culture.

Lisa also speaks about being a TRAC standing committee for 5 years and its recently developed journal (which she is currently editor-in-chief for), as well as the importance of open access and what it means for the future of publishing.

They also chat about fieldwork, including how portaloos should always be the first thing on the list when planning it, and advice on punting.
