Professor Alcock is a classical archaeologist, with interests in the material culture of the eastern Mediterranean and western Asia, particularly in Hellenistic and Roman times.

Her books, solo authored and edited, include: Archaeologies of the Greek Past: Landscape, Monuments and Memory (Cambridge 2001), Side-by-Side Survey: Comparative Regional Analysis in the Mediterranean Region (Oxford 2004); and Blackwell Studies in Global Archaeology: Classical Archaeology (Oxford 2007, 2nd ed. 2012).
