Biography

Drinkwater speaks of a lifelong interest in the Romans, beginning with a picture book he received as a young child, and then citing the BBC television series, Dr Who, as another major influence - specifically the four episode serial titled "The Romans" in 1965. He graduated[where?] and became a university teacher with a focus on the Late Roman Empire, and his principle field of research was the Roman West[1].He is known for his numerous works on Roman Gaul.[2], and for the Third Century Crisis of Rome.[3] In 2007 he shifted his focus, initially to the office of the emperor, but then focusing on Nero and led to the writing of his 2019 book, Nero: Emperor and Court.[4] This work was quoted and referenced in the BBC Radio series, In Our Time, in its treatment of Nero[5].

He has been joint editor of the Derbyshire Archaeological Journal, and an honorary lecturer of Archaeology at the University of Sheffield.[1] He is now Professor Emeritus of Roman Imperial History at the Department of Classics and Archaeology at the University of Nottingham.[6]

Drinkwater has been elected[when?] a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London.[1]
