Research interests

My primary area of research is the archaeology of the British Bronze Age. I am particularly interested in the treatment of the human body and concepts of the self; depositional practices and what these reveal about the meanings and values ascribed to objects; and the relationship between space and society including domestic architecture and the changing organisation of landscape. I co-organise the Bronze Age Forum, which holds biannual conferences on the British and Irish Bronze Age. I have a longstanding interest in archaeological theory, particularly relational ontologies and phenomenological approaches to archaeological landscapes, and I am an editor of Archaeological Dialogues. I have a developing research interest in historical archaeology, including Victorian and Edwardian public parks as landscapes of improvement in which normative models of class, gender and colonial identities were constructed. I have recently published an edited volume on the material and visual culture of the 1916 Rising in Ireland, arising out of my work on the archaeology of internment from 1916-1923.
