Started experiments with the construction of coracles and other boats about twenty years ago. For last five years have been presenting Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age and Roman lifestyles. Investigating various techniques used in those times such as hunting, cordage and food preparation.
I am not a professionally trained archaeologist. I am a physicist by training. Until recently I was a research scientist at the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information technology at the University of California at San Diego.
I became involved with experimental archaeology while working at the Irish National Heritage Park during my bachelor studies and then pursued experimental research for both by MA and PhD (at University College Dublin), which focused on early medieval house reconstructions.
