Graham Oliver is an ancient historian. He studies Greek history, in particular epigraphy – the study of inscriptions, Classical and Hellenistic history, and the ancient economy and society of ancient Greece from the Archaic to Roman eras. His interests also extend to the reception of ancient Greek culture: Oliver works on ancient Greece in the long 18th-century and has also published on the relationship between ancient Greece and the commemoration of the war dead in the early 20th century.
