Research interests

My research concerns the Danelaw boundary of the late 9th century AD (c. AD878 – 890): the boundary that separated the Kingdoms of the Danelaw (the Vikings and King Guthrum) from Wessex (the Anglo-Saxons and King Alfred). I am interested in the effect this political boundary had on the landscape and the surrounding communities. I am using GIS in a novel way in combination with a comparative analysis of other historic and/or contemporary political boundaries to do this.

Other interests

In March 2015, I surveyed a site in Hertfordshire using resistivity and magnetometry equipment. The results of the survey produced anomalies consistent with building remains. There seem to be two phases of building on the site – a later series of seemingly brick built buildings associated with a Domesday recorded mill and an earlier timber framed building. There are also other interesting earthwork features on site which may be consistent with early industrial activity.
