The work presented in this thesis describes the first experimental study of the 12C(gamma,pd) reaction using tagged photons in the energy range 110MeV to 400MeV. The experiment was carried out using the MAMI-B c.w. electron accelerator at the Institut fur Kernphysik, Mainz, Germany. Bremsstrahlung photons were produced on a thin nickel foil and are tagged by momentum analysing the recoiling electrons using the Glasgow tagging spectrometer. The Tagger tags photons with an energy resolution of 2MeV and a photon flux of ~108s-1. The 12C target was in the form of a 2mm thick graphite sheet. A plastic scintillator hodoscope PiP was used to detect the protons from the target and in three settings covered polar angles from 22.7
