Lucas Aniceto holds a PhD in Classical Archaeology. As a graduate of the University of Burgundy (Dijon), the Istituto degli Studi L'Orientale (Naples) and the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, he defended in 2019 a doctoral thesis devoted to the Samnite, Lucanian and Brettian nucleated settlements of the Hellenistic period, under the supervision of Prof. O. de Cazanove (Paris 1). His research, devoted both to the urban geography of the fortified settlements in the Italic hinterland and to their networking within specific territorial dynamics, aims to place these issues within the broader European phenomenon of indigenous urbanization and the emergence of the oppida during the late Iron Age. Possessing a solid field experience, he has been carrying out an in-depth study of the pre-Roman and Roman site of Eboli (Campania) for several years, based on archive documentation, with a view to publishing the French excavations carried out on the site between 1973 and 1984.

In 2021 he joined the Labex Les passés dans le présent as a member of the Cardo project.
