Active areas of research in which potential doctoral projects can be defined include the dating of: irrigation systems in arid regions; upland Palaeolithic sites in Southern Britain; coastal sites with preserved aeolian deposits; the construction of early medieval buildings.Long term collaboration developed with the Maison d’Archaeologie, Bordeaux III on brick dating led to the development of a research network (Gd RE) supported by CNRS, Ceramic Building Materials and New Dating Methods which is in its second term and the laboratory is keen to further develop collaborative projects of this type.Following a further year working on an instrument development project he came to Durham in 1979 as a research assistant on a pottery dating project; following a series of appointments as a Research Fellow he was awarded an SERC Advanced Fellowship, and in 1991 was appointed a Lecturer. He has developed a luminescence dating laboratory with the capability to support both dating and methodological investigation, and his research has included the study of the luminescence properties of minerals, their application to dating and also to radiation dosimetry.Currently the primary materials of interest are sediments from prehistoric sites and ceramic materials from medieval buildings and structures.
