My research is centred on how television affects understanding in Archaeology. If you want to see more I can supply my project plan. However my published work is available through this link Papers

I have been working towards this goal for 13 years and I am not from a priviledged background. I left my comprehensive school at 16  with just a couple of O levels as I struggled with Dyslexia. I only read my first book at 15.

I came to university late and went to Southampton for an undergraduate degree- I graduated in 2006. My undergraduate dissertation was published and has been on the reading list of several universities.

 I then studied for an MA in Maritime Archaeology at UCL this was partime and self funded. I graduated with a distinction (the highest grade you can get). I graduated in 2009.

Since then I have been trying to secure a place at universities. Nearly every year since I have emailed out my proposal and finaly looking for a supervisor.

I have finally been accepted at Oxford. I am unable to find the fees and I am looking for support for the first year.
