Biography

After 11 years in the computer industry, I started an Archaeology degree at Bradford. Since then I have worked in a commercial archaeology unit and for the GG-Top project at the University of Birmingham. My work has included data visualisation, geophysics and computer simulation. I have been part of a series of multidisciplinary research projects, including the Anglo-American Project in Pompeii, the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes project, GG-Top, Medieval Warfare on the Grid and am now part of the Europe's Lost Frontiers project.

I am currently managing the computer simulation aspects of the Europe's Lost Frontiers project, using agent-based modelling to test hypotheses regarding the environment and human inhabitants of Mesolithic Doggerland. I am also just finishing a book about the Medieval Warfare on the Grid project, titled 'Modelling the Logistics of Manzikert'.
