Biography and Irish Studies research interests
PhD in Indo-European Studies with special interest in relationship between archaeology and linguistics. Have excavated a number of sites in Ireland, most notably, Donegore Hill, a Neolithic causewayed enclosure; Haughey’s Fort, a Late Bronze Age hillfort, and the ditches at Navan Fort, the ancient capital of Ulster. I am also the editor of Emania, the Bulletin of the Navan Research Group which publishes on the archaeology and mythology associated with the Ulster Cycle of Tales.
