Hi, I’m Claire, and I have been part of the Ness team for nine years or more now. I am usually to be found in Structure 10 attempting to unravel its mysteries. In addition, I am interested in how pots are being deposited on the site.
Away from the Ness I specialise in Bronze Age ceramics and mortuary practices, and I have just completed my MPhil at the University of Bradford entitled The Early Bronze Age Funerary Cups of Southern England – a huge but fascinating project. I am currently working as the glamorous research assistant on my husband Mike Copper’s Historic Environment Scotland-funded project Tracing the Lines: Uncovering Grooved Ware trajectories in Scotland.
