I have two main strands of research. The first is in developing methodologies for interpreting and reporting on both individual finds and whole assemblages from excavations. The second consists of using both archaeological material and contemporary literature to explore the complex relationships between animals and people in Late Iron Age and Roman Britain and in the wider Roman Empire, concentrating on the use of animal imagery in domestic, religious and funerary contexts.
