Research interests

For the last 40 years I have been involved in the archaeology of Orkney and Shetland with particular reference to the Viking age and Late Norse period of settlement. My main focus of expertise lies in the study of material culture in the North Atlantic region for this period, particularly Iceland and also for the integration of transdisciplinary evidence - ranging from the historical to environmental material.

I am firmly committed to the public dissemination of the archaeological message, through Community engagement and through international cultural tourism activities.
