Katharine Mawford, Sarah Douglas and Silvannen Gerrard have all been awarded the title Doctor this summer, and all three had to complete the final stages of their research and their vivas remotely. 

Dr Ina Berg, Postgraduate Research Director for the Department, was one of the first to wish them congratulations: "On behalf of the Department of Classics, Ancient History, Archaeology and Egyptology I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Drs Katharine Mawford, Sarah Douglas and Silvannen Gerrard on completing their PhDs.

"We are extremely proud of our students who, in some cases, had to complete the final stages of their PhD and the viva itself during lockdown conditions. Congratulations on your special graduation day. We wish you all the very best for your future."
