Abstract

Since my graduation from the University of Glasgow, I have gone on to establish a career that has spanned 30-years in which my published research and investigation has made significant contributions within the field of prehistoric landscape archaeology. I have offered a selection of these works for formal consideration for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by Published Work. It is clear that my career has spanned what could be regarded as a transformative period for the archaeological profession: the impact of developer-funded work and the sheer mass of data that this has produced is noteworthy and has taken place during a period of significant innovation with regards to the techniques and technologies available for practitioners. The work presented in my thesis has, in turn, responded and contributed to this radical evolution on a number of fronts. My research has a Europe-wide focus but the vast majority of the field research I have undertaken has been concentrated in England, and focussed on a wide range of sites and areas as well as themes. The three pieces incorporated in the thesis are linked by geography (largely concentrating on the landscapes of central southern England) and chronology (focussing on the emergence of agricultural landscapes of the 2nd and 1st millennia calBC) but I have also attempted situate my research with reference to past and current theoretical frameworks.
