Research

The focus of my research is the relations between people and environment: how have past human societies and the environments they inhabited constructed and transformed each other? And can understanding these past relationships help inform the present and the future? It is an interest I have pursued in different ecologies (temperate, semi-arid, arid, rainforest) and with societies at different levels of complexity from Neanderthals and early Homo sapiens to Etruscan and Roman shepherds and farmers to present-day rainforest foragers and farmers. The transition to farming (the ‘agricultural revolution in prehistory’) has been a particular focus for many years, but more recently my interests have also moved backwards in time to the adaptations -  environmental, technological, cognitive -  that underpinned the transformation of Homo sapiens from an African to a global species at the same time as Neanderthals disappeared. These interests have involved me leading large inter-disciplinary fieldwork teams in Borneo (Niah Cave), Libya (Haua Fteah Cave) and currently Iraqi Kurdistan (Shanidar Cave).
