I am interested in most periods of European archaeology, with a particular focus on material culture, artefacts and technology. I have a background in stone tool analysis and am currently looking at the social context of ironworking technology in Iron Age and early medieval Ireland.

As part of my PhD research I am organising an experimental smelt to take place in Ferrycarrig, Co. Wexford. More info here.
As part of my Masters Thesis on flint from Lambay Island of the coast of Dublin, Ireland I undertook a survey of the pebble flint resources on Lambay's beaches. Since then I have been extending this survey to the Dublin coast facing lambay. I hope to have the survey completed before I retire!
