2004Lindsay HM, 'The Laudatio Murdiae: Its Content and Significance', Latomus, 63 88-97 (2004) [C1]

A significant paper in a journal rated A. It deals with Roman attitudes to commemoration and also touches on the legal and social status of women in Roman society.

2003Lindsay HM, 'Adoption amongst the Seii and Aelii', Hommages ? Carl Deroux 111,, Latomus, Brussells 271-281 (2003) [B1]

An invited paper in a prestigious volume produced by Latomus, which is an A grade journal. This was a preliminary study for my book Adoption in the Roman World, CUP November 2009.

2005Dueck D, Lindsay HM, Pothecary S, Strabo's Cultural Geography: The Making of a Kolossourgia, Cambridge University Press, United Kingdom, 286 (2005) [A2]

Product of an international conference held at Bar Ilan University, Israel, which I co-organised with 2 other leading scholars on Strabo. It was taken up by CUP and has been reviewed favorably by W.A. Koelsch Geog Review 96 (3) 514-515.

2005Lindsay HM, 'Amasya and Strabo's patria in Pontus', Strabo's Cultural Geography: The Making of a Kolossourgia, Cambridge University Press, United Kingdom 180-199 (2005) [B2]

My contribution to the volume I edited with Sarah Pothecary and Daniela Dueck. According to W.A. Koelsch 'Hugh Lindsay's "Amasya and Strabo's patria in Pontus" is based in part on his observations of the region and illustrated with some of his own photographs. Lindsay's essay is a fine example of how what classicists, curiously enough, call "autopsy" (and geographers, ambiguously enough, call "fieldwork") even after two millennia, can confirm and illuminate Strabo's text' Geog Review 96 (3) 514-515.

2001Lindsay HM, 'Adoption and its function in cross-cultural contexts', Childhood, Class and Kin in the Roman World, Routledge, London & New York 190-204 (2001) [B1]

Chapter in an important work on the Roman family, edited by leading figure Suzanne Dixon, and honouring the work of Beryl Rawson, Professor Emerita at the ANU. Papers are by leading experts on the Roman family.
