I've set up this blog as a place to help me gather my thoughts on things that I read or see that relate to my interests. The topics covered are likely to include dating in archaeology and palaeoanthropology, applications of quantitative methods to study the past, historical demography, chemical and isotopic analysis in archaeology with forays into other aspects of archaeology, history and genealogy.

For several years I've been putting off having a blog because I didn't think I could sustain the flow of new writing, but I've finally succumbed. I don't promise to post often or on any regular schedule.
