Professor Paul Halsall

This website is one of the richest history sites you will find anywhere largely because of the work of Professor Paul Halsall.

He defended his dissertation on Women's Bodies, Men's Souls: Sanctity and Gender Byzantium at Fordham University in New York in May 1999. His undergraduate degree is in history from the University of Edinburgh, and he holds a masters degree in Classical Civilization from the University of London (Birkbeck College).
