Welcome to my website. I am the real James Patterson, though perhaps not the one you were looking for. I am the Language Program Director in Classics at Yale University.


On this website you will find some information on my work on North Africa, my teaching, supplementary material for my Ancient Greek textbook Gareth Morgan’s Lexis. a link to my new project Reading Morphologically, and my Etruscan and Early Italic fonts.

Click here to read a bit more about me. My CV and some of my academic work is available on academia.edu. My departmental webpage is here.
