As part of my PhD I read, skimmed, checked and generally pursued thousands upon thousands of articles across a the discipline of archaeology. Due to the nature of archaeology, which as a discipline is still publishing in journals which only exist in hard copy or publishing articles as chapters in books, it can be very hard to find articles about specific topics. It’s getting easier, as journals are beginning to at least post article titles and author names, but it can still be a chore.
In order to assist, I’ve uploaded my bibliographies. I hope this helps researchers find interesting material, and judging by the site stats, it looks like it is. Owing to my own research, there’s an unsurprising bias towards material studies.
- Research on the production of copper and its alloys in the past, including copper alloy objects and their production methods.
- Research on the production of iron (and steel) in the past, including iron (and steel) objects and their production methods.
- Research on the production of gold and silver in the past, including gold and silver objects and their production methods.
- Research on the production of glass in the past, including glass objects and their production methods.
- Research on the production of ceramic in the past, including ceramic objects and their production methods.
- More general research on archaeological material and its analysis.
- Research on the use of statistics to process archaeological data.
- Research on the philosophy and theory of archaeology, with a lean towards archaeological science.
- Research into the period of the Roman Empire, with a few specialisations (see page).
- Research on production strategies and economy of relevant to the ancient world.
Below are a small number of pieces I have written with the intent to offer help, advice, or an introduction to a topic.
