Current Research

I retired from the University of Exeter at the end of September 2017.  I am frequently asked what I do in retirement.  The answer is simple, I do what I want and this includes archaeology.  I have been fortunate to have had many opportunities during my career and many of the projects I have been involved with are now completed. However, I am still active in a number of areas; all by choice.  My retirement activities fall into three basic categories; family and friends, archaeology and fishing.

My archaeological interests focus on the Peopling of the Americas (North and South), Southwestern Ancestral Puebloan, Experimental Archaeology and Palaeolithic.  A few other topics come into the mix as well on an ad hoc basis.  Follow the links to see what I am up to. I am also still active in teaching taking the form of short courses, workshops and presentations (academic and public).
