My main research interests are concerned with the social and philosophical implications of Information Technologies in archaeology. I am interested in the nature, development, impact and implications of information technologies in relation to the archaeological discipline and their effects on our understanding of the past. Recent publications have focused on the relationships between archaeology, archaeological theory, and the technological representations of archaeological knowledge – how that knowledge is created, manipulated, modelled, and understood, and how that has changed with the introduction of new information technologies. Current work is looking at the implications of 'big data' techniques within archaeology and issues surrounding open data.
Other areas surround the theory and practice of the application of GIS to archaeological intra-site and landscape studies, and a long-standing interest in computer-based cemetery studies and burial analysis.
