I am a postdoctoral researcher, usually based at Newcastle University in the north-east of the UK. During my time at Newcastle, as well as teaching and training students, I have been involved in research projects in the south-west of the UK, France, Greece and Turkey. My research focuses on Roman, Late Antique and Early Medieval ceramics, particularly as evidence for economic systems and long-distance connectivity. My British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship is a collaboration between Newcastle University and the British School at Athens.
My PhD, completed at Newcastle in 2016, considered contact and exchange on the Atlantic Seaboard of Europe between the 5th and 7th centuries AD. My current British Academy-funded project, ‘Tintagel: Trans-European Connections in the Post-Roman World’, extends this research by focusing on the British site with the largest quantity of imported Aegean, East Mediterranean and North African pottery of this date. Throughout the second year of this 3-year project I was based in the Fitch Laboratory at the BSA to carry out petrographic and chemical analysis of samples of Late Antique pottery from the well-known, coastal site of Tintagel in Cornwall, UK. The project is grateful for the ongoing support of The Duchy of Cornwall, English Heritage, The Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro, and Cornwall Archaeology Unit in accessing collections. I am also the ceramic specialist for the imported wares for the recent ‘TCARP’ excavations at Tintagel, and sit on the expert panel of this project.
