My research focuses on antiquarianism, the study of the physical and textual past in early modern Europe. I’m currently working on a project exploring the role of antiquaries in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Scottish culture as well as finishing a monograph on the antiquarian writings of the polymath John Aubrey (1626-1697) which looks at his studies of stone circles and other prehistoric remains in Britain.
