Thomas Ashby

(1874-1931), Archaeologist

Sitter in 2 portraits
Between 1899 and 1930, Ashby wrote regular reports for a variety of newspapers and journals on a series of excavations underway in Rome at the time. In 1902, he enrolled as the first student of the British School at Rome, a centre for archaeological research, and within a year had been appointed as assistant director. He was soon after promoted to director, a post he retained until 1925. Ashby produced a series of detailed topographical studies of the Roman roads of Italy, which were published as The Roman Campagna in Classical Times (1927).
