I am interested in political organisation and monetary systems in the late Hellenistic period, with particular interest in Hasmonaean Judaea.

I am currently researching how we might model the 'Hasmonaean state' (if pre-Roman Judaea may be discussed as a 'state' at all), in the light of recent theorisations of statehood in sociology, archaeology and anthropology. In particular, I am interested in how Jannaean bronze coinage might be used within a political economy approach to Judaean political organisation.
