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. However, I’m still a keen blogger and this month as it happens there […]

Coprolites, Midges and Gale-Force Winds – Digging the Dream!
Now, don’t let the title of this blog post fool you because my return to the Links of Noltland for three weeks of digging last month were an absolute blast! I’d meant to write a post about the dig much sooner than this but unfortunately a combination of hardly having been in Glasgow since my […]
Back to Westray…Then Back Again
Just returning from another fantastic week of fieldwork with the visualisation team (aka the usual suspects Aaron and Kieran). We were back up on Westray continuing to compile a visual and audio record of the Links of Noltland site and ongoing excavations (our work is kindly grant supported by Historic Scotland). Kieran took the reigns this […]
Mesolithic Man: A Weekend Spent Eyebrow-Wrangling
For a little while now every so often I’ll take an afternoon or (if I really get into the zone) a weekend to spend some time working on small projects I’ve set for myself to practice and improve my skills in particular areas of my CGI work. Often when I’m working on reconstruction projects I […]
Vote for Links of Noltland in Current Archaeology!
The Links of Noltland has been nominated for the Current Archaeology 2014 awards as “Rescue Dig of the Year”, exciting! You can cast your votes HERE… It would be great to see Noltland win the category – not only because I’m currently involved in visualisation work for the site – but because it’s significance to the understanding of Neolithic […]
This Was 2013- Now Back to Blogging
2013 shaped itself up to be a great year in a number of ways, especially for my research and archaeological pursuits. It was the year I got a taste for aerial archaeology flying over Cumbria thanks to Kieran Baxter, the year we released our Digital Dwelling at Skara Brae film on the unsuspecting public, and also the […]
Return to the Links of Noltland: Fieldwork Diary Vol II
Back at my desk in Glasgow after another fantastic week up in Orkney working at the Links of Noltland on Westray with usual suspects Kieran and Aaron as well as musician and sound-man extraordinare John Was . This was our second trip up North this summer (you can read about our first trip in an earlier post) […]
A Fieldwork Photo-Diary from the Links of Noltland and Beyond…
Back at my desk again after a fantastic week up in Orkney with Aaron and Kieran, this time doing some fieldwork over at Links of Noltland on Westray, work which has been kindly grant supported by Historic Scotland. I won’t be writing too much about this project just yet as we’re still very much in […]
