Bio

I am an archaeobotanist and environmental archaeologist, and my research focuses on the archaeology of Scotland, North-West Europe and the North Atlantic islands (Atlantic Scotland, Faroes, Iceland and Greenland). I am particularly interested in the changing nature of people-plant interactions during the transition from hunter-gathering to agriculture and the environmental consequences of the spread of agriculture across the North Atlantic islands from prehistory to the Viking-Norse periods.

Research Interests

  • Archaeobotany: continuity and change in crop production, land use, wild plant gathering, use of fuels and human-environment interactions

  • Mesolithic and Neolithic archaeology: hunter-gatherer and early farmer economies, speed and nature of the transition to agriculture, adaptations to challenging environments (e.g. islands and mountains) and environmental change

  • Archaeobotanical taphonomy and experimental archaeology

  • Role, potential and issues with the use of archaeological data to inform current and future responses to climate/environmental change
