My work

Here’s a selection of my papers, lectures, education resources and professional reports. It’s not exhaustive, but gives some idea of the range of stuff I’m happy to do:

This document gives an overview of my standard terms and charges:

For finds work, my main areas of focus are:

  • prehistoric pottery from southern England, Wales, and the Midlands;
  • prehistoric worked flint;
  • Roman pottery in the Midlands and South-West England;
  • medieval pottery from the Midlands;
  • post-medieval pottery across Britain.

If your needs fall outside these areas, there’s a good chance I may be able to assist, but some specialist work is regionally-specific. Hopefully I’ll be able to help. If I can’t, I’ll probably know someone who can.

In addition to artefact analysis, I illustrate artefacts for publication or publicity, saving clients time and money. I can produce live sketches, animations, videos or blogs to bring the finds to life for a wide range of audiences.

I do talks and lectures both in-person and online, for schools, local interest groups, local history and archaeology societies, and FE/HE groups. I have particular expertise in dealing with legacy museum collections and archives, especially those relating to contested heritage, unpublished sites, and antiquarian investigations.

Some of my designs and illustrations are now available on Redbubble, a print-on-demand service that will print them on clothing, notepads, prints, stickers… almost anything!
