I am a sessional lecturer for the Archaeology and Heritage Studies degree programme at the University of Worcester. My research interests focus on prehistoric hunter-gatherers, from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Late Mesolithic and Early Neolithic, with a particular geographic focus on Wales and south-west England. My research is theoretically informed, exploring ideas concerning identity, materiality, landscapes and mortuary rites. I also have a passion for lithics and lithic analysis as well as cave archaeology; my PhD research investigated cave use during the Mesolithic period in south western Britain.

In addition my primary research specialism, I have a keen interest in heritage theory, particularly concerning the themes of politics and identity which I explore in the heritage based module I teach (ARCH2110 Visions of England).
