Research interests

Dr Ewan Campbell received his PhD in early medieval archaeology from the University of Cardiff in 1991. He had previously worked in commercial archaeology. After a research post at Cardiff, he came to the University of Glasgow where he is a part-time Senior Lecturer.

His main research interests include:

  • Inter-disciplinary study of the Celtic-speaking areas of the Atlantic seaboard of north-west Europe in the early medieval period
  • Trade and economy
  • Settlement studies
  • Artefact studies, particularly pottery, glass and metalwork
  • The origins and development of the Scottish kingdom

He is currently Co-Director of the Strathearn Environs and Royal Forteviot (SERF) project - a large-scale multi-disciplinary landscape study of a key area in the development of early medieval Scotland. He has excavated in Scotland, Wales, England and Jordan, and has published widely with specialist papers, monographs and popular books. Previous published work includes the important sites of Dinas Powys, Longbury Bank and Llangors crannog in Wales; Dunadd and Loch Glashan crannog in Argyll; and Sollas and Eilean Olabhat in North Uist. Currently he is involved in a proposed project to study the early medieval monastery on Iona – the Assembling Iona project; and the Rhynie Environs Project. Other recent work has included a cross-disciplinary study of the psychology of archaeology.
