I began using experimental archaeology during my PhD research to provide comparative micromorphology datasets to study formation processes and activity residues within occupation deposits inside Romano-British timber-framed and earthen buildings.
The experimental research at Butser Ancient Farm and St. Fagans, UK, and Lejre, Denmark, proved to be a powerful tool for researching short-term changes within non-masonry structures in the archaeological record.
In addition to my PhD research I was involved with the 'Developing experimental approaches in archaeology' research project at the University of Reading as a result of which workshops were held at Butser Ancient Farm and West Stow, UK and were attended by practitioners, academics and heritage organisations.
