Research interests

My interests centre on cultural developments in Iran, Mesopotamia and the Arabian peninsula, as well as relations between these regions and their neighbours. My fieldwork has been mainly conducted in Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates and the experience on working on multi-period sites has meant that my interests extend, chronologically, from the Neolithic to the Islamic conquest. I'm interested in the evolution of technology (ceramic, metallurgical, agricultural), political systems, and economic organisation. I'm also fascinated by Near Eastern religious traditions and the problems of understanding them, particularly in situations where different cultures overlap or collide, as happened during the Achaemenid Persian, Macedonian, Parthian and Sasanian periods. I am also extremely interested in using cuneiform sources to understand ancient economies, as an adjunct to archaeological approaches.

Current projects

My main, current project is an ARC-funded, joint investigation of the Mamasani district in southwestern Iran. This is being run together with the Iranian Center of Archaeological Research, part of the Iranian Cultural Heritage & Tourism Organization and involves two of my former students, Dr Cameron Petrie (Cambridge University) and Dr Lloyd Weeks (Univ. of Nottingham). From 2009 to 2014 I am an Australian Research Council Professorial Research Fellow and will not be teaching undergraduate units, but will continue to supervise post-graduate students.
