NEoN at the Abandon Normal Devices Festival

Baxter and I are gearing up to make the long drive down to the Castleton in the Peak District for the start of the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) Festival which promises to be rife with “vertical adventures, a roaming biennial of digital culture, new cinema & art.” Sounds intriguing right? We’re excited. We’ll be talking […]

Adventures in Alaska

Last week I returned home after spending just shy of a month working in Quinhagak, Alaska excavating a pre-contact Yup’ik sod house at Nunalleq.

As luck would have it I wrote a paper last year addressing the same topic in the context of challenging digital archaeology, so I […]

As most of you know, in the year or so since I finished my PhD I’ve set myself up to operate freelance and have been working on a wide range of […]
