In addition to the paid work archaeomaterials carries out, I am also actively involved with my own research projects. Where possible I apply for funding to analyse assemblages, present at conferences and write papers. This research then contributes to the paid analysis that I carry out.
I have recently received funding from the Royal Archaeological Institute Research Fund to carry out a slag, artefact and slag inclusion project on the Sedgeford material. This project will hopefully develop further into a larger Saxon Iron Project.
In addition to the above project I am working on a funding application to start a Viking Iron project. This will include more analysis of artefacts from Dublin and Ireland.
Some of my past research projects can also be found by following the links. This includes the results from my PhD research and my research and thoughts on slag inclusion research.
