Member of EXARC since

I am a professional archaeologist working in the private sector in Ireland. I have been presenting Viking Age living history and material culture since late 1990. More recently I have been presenting Hiberno-Norse material culture with museum-quality replica artifacts from 10th-century Ireland. I also present Irish warrior (kern and gallowglass) material culture from the late 15th C- the late 16th C. I completed an MSc at the Centre for Experimental Archaeology and Material Culture at University College Dublin in 2022. I focused on the pottery production of Later Medieval Ireland.
