Key Research Interests

Post-medieval archaeology, landscape archaeology, the history of garden design, environmental history and agricultural history. Chronologically, I range from the Iron Age to the nineteenth century:in general rural England; special interests include: ‘fringe’ archaeology and popular perceptions of the past; the history of water management (drainage, irrigation, and the exploitation of wetlands); the survival of prehistoric/Romano-British field systems within the modern landscape; the archaeology of hunting and trapping; and the origins of medieval systems of land division and territorial organisation.
