At the ‘Dykes through time’ session at the Theoretical Archaeology Group conference in Cardiff, Wales,on the 19th of December 2017, I gave a paper ‘Bringing the dykes into the 21st century – How did we get here?’. I have now uploaded the paper to my page on Academic.edu.
It can be found here:

It has been a very busy year for me and now as 2017 becomes 2018 I have just got around to updating this website after a very long period of inactivity. There is a new clearer design and I have added links to the Offa’s Dyke Collaboratory project and the session held at TAG 2017.
The 2017 Theoretical Archaeology Group conference was held in Cardiff between the 18th and 20th of December 2017. The website is here TAG 2017.
Of particular interest was the session “Dykes through Time: Rethinking Early Medieval Linear Earthworks” organized by Professor Howard Williams of the University of Chester. The full session abstracts are here including my paper “Bringing the Dykes into the 21st Century: How did we get here?”.
The powerpoint presentations and abstract for the papers can be found on the Offa’s Dyke Collaboratory web site here – presentations.
I have now joined the Offa’s Dyke Collaboratory project. The Offa’s Dyke Collaboratory was created at a workshop held at The University Centre, Shrewsbury, on Friday 28th April 2017 and the aim is:
“to promote new research and field investigation into the Mercian-British frontier (broadly) between the Dee and the Severn estuaries in the borderlands of England with Wales”
