Archaeology Advice

If you need advice about something archaeological – please get in touch:

Have you found an interesting stone? Send me photographs of your interesting finds and I can help to tell you more about them

Above: flint points from the island of Rum, about 8000 years old.

Are you fascinated by some humps and bumps that you have come across in a field? Tell me where they are and if possible send me a photo. Lets see what we can find out. Perhaps you have found a new site!

Do you want to know more about a favourite site? What is it? Where is it? I can help you find out more about the people who lived in the past and created the rich archaeological record we have in Britain today.

Are you researching a book or a television programme? I have worked with television companies from a variety of countries to help them develop ideas and research leads for programmes on themes as diverse as St Kilda and Stone Age Ceremony.

These are just some of the things that I can help you with.
