My main area of research has been the study of New Zealand Māori settlements, employing interdisciplinary techniques, to address questions such as: how to identify dynamic settlement systems; the mechanisms of interaction spheres; small-scale cultural change and post-contact change; and issues of ethnicity and identity. To this end, I am concerned to explore appropriate theoretical approaches including landscape studies, contextual archaeology, relational studies and historical narratives, with interpretations derived from ethnographic analogy, indigenous Maori understandings and land-use concepts.
