Church archaeology and architecture, the early Medieval period, the transition to agriculture in the Middle East and Northern Europe, and the way that this relates to social change.

About me:

I am in my second year of a BA degree in Archaeology and have previously studied the subject as an A level. My interest in ancient cultures developed after studying the Greeks and later Ancient History at school, but during my sixth form I became more interested in cultures which had limited or no historical records. An A level in History of Art has also broadened my interests in the way art, decoration and architecture can reflect the political, religious and social identity of past communities.
