Biography and Research Interests

Karen completed her BA (History with Archaeology) and PhD (2005) at Bangor University.   Her doctoral thesis examined the modes of burial and attendant rituals carried out in the Welsh frontier zone during the Roman period.  Research interests include the settlement and burial archaeology of Iron Age and Roman Britain and, over the last few years, historic and modern graffiti.  She is currently in the process of recording historic graffiti at a number of sites across Wales.
