Research Profile

Current Activities

Recent research activities focus on two World Heritage sites,

1) Çatalhöyük Project. Investigating the role of clay, both as a raw material and a landscape determinant.

2) Chinese high-fired ceramics - a raw materials perspective.  A long-standing research theme now in collaboration with the Palace Museum, Beijing. Moving away from conventional chemical characterisations to a more holistic approach that explains ceramic development through raw materials: initially focusing on the Five Great Wares of the Song Dynasty (Ding, Ru, Jun, Guan and Ge wares).
