And The Reviews Are In: Evaluating Digital Dwelling

It’s been a while since I’ve had time to sit down and properly write a reflexive blog post about anything to do with my PhD, and considering I’m currently finalising the last chapter of my thesis now seemed like as good a time as any! If you keep up with the blog you will know […]

Jarlshof: CGI and Kites with Kieran Baxter

Last summer I was invited to do a little reconstruction work (Viking settlement, medieval farmstead and the Laird’s House) for Kieran Baxter as part of his ambitious Jarlshof Project conducted as part of his masters degree at DJCAD, University of Dundee. Kieran describes the project in detail in a fantastic blog post on his website, but the general gist […]

Thinking Big – Some Landscape Archaeology in Cumbria

Some of you may remember a post I published a few months ago where I discussed a trip to the Kelvingrove Museum with artist and archaeologist Aaron Watson? Well we decided to keep the dialogue going and last week I visited Aaron for a few days in Lancaster and we spent our time visiting sites […]

Talking Theory and a Thought Provoking Visit to the Kelvingrove Museum

Last week was a good one for the development of the theory side of my PhD, it’s been a while since I’ve sat down for a thorough chat through some of the issues that plague archaeological reconstruction but I was presented with two such occasions in quick succession! The first coffee-fuelled chat was between myself, Daisy […]
