Personal profile

Research Interests

Much of my current research is concerned with exploring the dynamics of societal change in later prehistory, particularly in the Chalcolithic and in the Bronze and Iron Ages of Western Europe and the Mediterranean. Through the use of scientific dating techniques I also work on refining the chronologies that inform our understanding of the processes underpinning these dynamics. Another focus of my work is artefact studies, including the scientific analysis of archaeomaterials (primarily metal and ceramics).
