Biography

Personal Statement

I have a continuing fascination with the transition from hand-held to hafted technology which is reflected in my current research plans and recent publications. Fieldwork plans include further excavation at Kalambo Falls, Zambia to generate technological data on the Mode 2(Acheulean)/Mode 3 (Middle Stone Age) transition. Brief excavations in 2006 identified an unusual portion of the Kalambo succession that brings these two technological traditions within close stratigraphic proximity and we hope to be able expand excavations here soon.
