Human Evolution Interest

I have long-standing interests in the Neolithic and Bronze Age prehistory of Europe but since the late 1980s my research has been mainly focussed on exploring the use of method and theory from the study of biological evolution to understand cultural stability and change as an evolutionary process, taking up an agenda initially set by the work of Cavalli-Sforza and Feldman and Boyd and Richerson.
