I am a first-year PhD student in Lancaster University’s History department. My research focuses on Viking-Age sculpture, utilising digital methods such as GIS and network analysis to analyse the cultural and social connectivity across the Irish Sea region. My MA dissertation focused on the shared provenance between hogback stone monuments and place-names in Northumbria and Strathclyde. My MA also utilised GIS to better understand the spatial relationship between place-names and stone sculpture. My research into the Viking-Age feeds into my broader interest in interdisciplinary research, material culture, and cultural and social syncretism. I also welcome submissions on the general topics of material culture, digital humanities and local heritage.
