Personal profile

Research Interests

Patrick Gleeson is a archaeologist interested in the later prehistoric and medieval archaeology of Europe. His current research focus is the archaeloghy of cult, rulership, kingdoms and governance in the first millennium AD of northern Europe. He is particularly interested in the use of large scale remote sensing, G.I.S. and the application of new and novel methodologies at a landscape scale in these areas.He currently has ongoing field projects examing later prehistoric and early medieval cult landscapes, power centres, and royal landscapes in Ireland and Scotland, including Kedrah Fort, Lagore Crannog, Navan Fort, the Rock of Cashel and Knockainy. 

I am interested in supervising PhD research and supporting postdoctoral projects in any aspect of cult, kingship and religion in late prehistoric and medieval Europe.
