Research interests

My activities centre on Southern Italy in the period before Roman conquest. Current fieldwork is the excavation of a rural site at Chiaramonte di Tolve; occupation there spans the Lucanian period, and the early years of Roman domination. I have an ongoing programme for the chemical analysis of South Italian ceramics (PIXE-PIGE analysis and ICP-MS), and am also interested in exploring the colonial relationships in South Italy through iconographic sources.

Teaching and supervision

Current courses include a senior unit on Pre-Roman South Italy, and a postgraduate online course on the Greeks in the Western Mediterranean. In 2008 a new course on the Etruscans and Romans will be introduced, along with a pre-Honours seminar on the analysis of burials in the Classical World.
