I’ve been publishing on archaeological topics since 1997, just after I completed the MA Burial Archaeology at the University of Reading. During my PhD years (1996-1999), I started publishing research papers on his MA thesis and related topics, investigating the location and landscape settings of early Anglo-Saxon cemeteries.
Soon after, I finished his PhD on early Anglo-Saxon cremation practices. Then, I published pieces developed versions of elements of the thesis in different venues for the next c. 8 years. During this time, I began field projects and broader investigations of cremation practices in past societies. I’ve also initiated further investigations of death, memory and material culture through the fields of early medieval archaeology, mortuary archaeology, community archaeology and contemporary archaeology.
To date, I have served as Honorary Editor for 6 volumes of the Archaeological Journal, founded, designed and co-edited a new diamond open access journal, the Offa’s Dyke Journal, published 112 journal articles and book chapters, 9 edited books, 5 special issues of journals and 1 monograph. I’ve also a regular composer of notes, magazine articles and book reviews.
