Academic Research/Areas of Interest

Dr. Nulton works mainly in the area of classical archaeology and art.  Much of his research has focused on the intersection between ancient Greek and Roman art, religion, and culture.  Recent publications include a monograph on an Athenian sanctuary of Apollo dating to the early empire, and an article that proposes that certain famous “Classical” reliefs were actually designed and executed in the classical style during the imperial period.  Most currently, Dr. Nulton is engaged in research regarding portraits of Alexander the Great.  His favorite topics include sculpture, architecture, religion, and epigraphy.

His excavation experience includes Greek, Roman, and Etruscan sites in Corfu, Corinth, and Tuscany.  He has also conducted research in caves on the acropolis of Athens.
