A major strand of my current research is the development of an holistic methodology employing, amongst other techniques, GIS, laser scanning and geophysical prospection to enable greater understanding of structures ranging from the Scavi beneath the streets of Rome to the early medieval churches of Naxos in Greece and closer to home some of the finest examples of early churches in the north east of England. Following on from my work as co-author of the Wearmouth-Jarrow project, which was published in 2013, I am currently involved in applying enhanced survey methodology to a number projects in the coming year.
With over 30 years of experience in the archaeological arena, I have developed expertise in a range of fields that include GIS, computing and geophysical, landscape and building survey.
I am currently a Research Associate within the School of History, Classics and Archaeology. I co-ordinate various aspects of geomatics, geophysics and laser scannning for projects at Corbridge in Northumberland and Beckfoot in Cumbria with Ian Haynes (Newcastle University), the Apalirou Environs Project, Naxos, Greece with Sam Turner (Newcastle University), the Bogsak Archaeological Survey, Turkey with Gunder Varinlioglu (Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Istanbul) and the Lateran Project, Rome, Italy with Ian Haynes (Newcastle University), Paolo Liverani (University of Florence) and Salvatore Piro (ITABAC-CNR).
I contribute to teaching on the following modules
ARA2012 Fieldwork and Archaeological Practice
MA Field Skills in Archaeology
ARA8090 Research Themes, Theories and Skills in Archaeology
ARA8120 Recording Historic Buildings (module leader)
ARA8234 Landscape Archaeology: Theory and Practice
