The Monumental Collective

As many of you will know if you read the blog regularly, since the Digital Dwelling fieldwork I’ve continued to work on a number of collaborative projects and endeavors with Aaron Watson, Kieran Baxter and John Was.

Green Screens, Hillforts and Drawing with a Pencil

Since I finished my PhD and started to work freelance full-time back in the summer I’ve worked on quite a mix of jobs though for obvious reasons I’m not always able to share the production process or final outputs online right away, if at all.

Coprolites, Midges and Gale-Force Winds – Digging the Dream!

The community project is based in the isthmus area between Arrochar and Tarbet and aims to investigate the heritage of the area from prehistory to modern-day. We were called in to help record one of the post-medieval […]

Return to the Links of Noltland: Fieldwork Diary Vol II

This was our second trip up North this summer (you can read about our first trip in an earlier post) […]
