Research interests

Prior to 2000 I was fortunate to be involved in research projects that concentrated on the early medieval/late Iron Age and Norse periods in Scotland and further afield, with particular reference to Tintagel  in Cornwall, and St  Ninian’s Isle in Shetland. Since moving to the Isle of Lewis my research interests have concentrated on the archaeology of medieval Lewis, specifically excavations on the small tidal sea stack of Dùn Èistean in Ness, and research and survey of the coastal  chapel-sites of Lewis.  These projects are firmly rooted in the local area where I live and aim to work with colleagues to integrate archaeological and historical research, to work with the medium of Gaelic where possible and to support and enrich local heritage and tourist initiatives locally.
