Natural resource economics in the ancient world, especially in relation to the consumption of wood for timber and fuel; ancient sustainability (especially with respect to water and energy supplies); climate, ancient topography and ancient technology. I employ a multidisciplinary approach that synthesizes Classcial and Mediaeval historical sources, archaeology, and archaeological sciences; modern ecology, and modern historical and anthropological (ethnographic) paradigms. I work across time from the so-called 'Copper Age' (the beginning of the use of metals), to the late Mediaeval/early modern period.
