I studied for my first degree at the University of Reading. After two decades working abroad in the field of academic publishing I returned to the UK and read for a PhD at the University of Reading in 2006. From 2006-2009 I was the G.A. Wainwright Fellow in Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of Oxford, before taking up my current position in the Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology.


I teach archaeological theory, world archaeology, themes in urbanisation and the state, theoretical approaches to ancient maritime societies, and landscape archaeology.

Research interests

My research interests centre upon the eastern Mediterranean in the second and first millenia BC: the archaeology of Cyprus, the Levant, Egypt and Libya. I focus upon cross-cultural encounters: sailors’ lives on land across the eastern Mediterranean, and social relationships in imperial contents in New Kingdom Egypt. I also research the material construction of social relationships within domestic contexts, ancient and modern.
