I have recently submitted my PhD thesis in partnership with the University of Exeter and the University of Reading. My research investigates the evidence, use and performance of stone-tipped spear technologies among Neanderthal populations in the European Middle Palaeolithic.

After many years of digging on Bronze Age and Iron Age sites in Champagne (1980-1991) I started to cast bronze in 2003. I cast in clay moulds (lost wax) and in sand forms. I cast weapons, tools, jewels from Bronze and Iron Age and some modern sculptures.

I am a student at St. Mark's School in Southborough, Massachusetts. From the age of eight, I lived in Hancock, Massachusetts in the Berkshire Hills where I developed an early interest in archery. This led to an interest in the technologies of early humans.
