I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Bradford. My thesis is entitled, “Developing Archaeomagnetic Dating in the Scottish Neolithic”.
I will be returning to the Ness this summer, for the second time, having only briefly seen the site over a week last year.
You will most likely find me sampling one of the many amazing hearths the site has to offer!
My background is archaeological sciences although I spent two years broadening my horizons into longer and much earlier time scales at Lancaster University, where I studied the geomagnetic polarities during the Ordovician and Silurian epochs and then the later Triassic.
Fieldwork for this took me to Poland, Sweden, Ukraine and Svalbard (I counted myself very lucky!)
For those of you that I don’t bore, you’re welcome to ask any questions. In addition to archaeology, I live and breathe for travel and cookery.
I look forward to raising a glass with you all, sláinte mhór!
