This blog is about archaeology, lithics and the musings of an archaeology PhD student. It will cover a broad spectrum of the different facets of archaeology but most will have something to do with the prehistoric archaeological record.
Hello, my name is Jake Rowland. I am a second year PhD student at the University of Southampton with a passion for knapped stone artefacts and their analysis. My research is looking at understanding the life histories of middle Neolithic grave goods & specialised artefacts through a combination of experimental, technological and use-wear analyses. When I’m not working on my PhD or breaking open another nodule of flint I can usually be found walking up a mountain, treating patients in the back of an ambulance or spending time with my beautiful fiancee.
