Research Interests

My main research interest is the changing nature of the relationship between humans, plants and their environment during the transition to farming in North-West Europe and the environmental consequences of the spread of agriculture across the North Atlantic islands (Atlantic Scotland, Faroes, Iceland and Greenland) from prehistory to the Viking-Norse periods. My research focuses on: Archaeobotany and environmental archaeology of Scotland, North-West Europe and the North Atlantic islands (Atlantic Scotland, Faroes, Iceland, Greenland).

Main Research interests:

  • Archaeobotany
  • Mesolithic and Neolithic archaeology
  • Archaeobotanical taphonomy and experimental archaeology
