Historical archaeology, buildings, art, and identifying religion in the archaeological record. I also have a penchant for archaeological theory; Marxist approaches and notions of globalisation fascinate me in particular.

About me:

I am currently a third year student studying BA Archaeology. For my dissertation, I hope to investigate mausolea constructed during the Scottish Enlightenment, exploring how changes in society may have manifested themselves in the architecture of graveyard monuments. As mentioned above, I enjoy archaeological theory, so much so that studying in great detail individual objects or sites tends to frustrate me - placing those cases within the macrocosm holds much more appeal. I also place great weight in art because, as Robert Henri said: "There is no art without contemplation" - it is a distinctly human endeavour.
