I am interested in the application of geospatial technologies to answer archaeological questions and the interpretation of this information in GIS. My technical specialism is shallow geophysics and land survey data acquisition, and the manipulation of this information in digital environments. Recently I have been paying particular attention to modelling data in 3d, the incorporation of CAD into the workflow and the production of Virtual Reality environments. As a landscape archaeologist I am especially interested in late medieval and early modern landscapes, notably pre-modern landholding systems and settlement patterns.
I developed teaching material for, and delivered, structured demonstrations in traditional survey techniques (plane table, tape and off-set, dumpy level), digital survey techniques (total station, diff-GPS, terrestrial laser scanning) and geophysical survey (magnetic gradiometery, earth resistivity, electromagnetics). I have also developed and delivered teaching in GIS with a focus on archaeological applications.
