He has undertaken archaeological fieldwork and laboratory analysis in England, the American Southwest and western Canada. His research deals generally with human subsistence and human/environment relationships, topics that he approaches through zooarchaeological methods.

Research Programs

He is currently working on a SSHRC-funded project on the environmental and cultural history of the Peace River region in BC and Alberta, with emphasis on the site of Tse’K’wa (also known as Charlie Lake Cave) . Although he is no longer actively working in the American Southwest, he is still preparing a few final papers on previous research. He will not be accepting new graduate students.
