Dr Mark McKerracher

Research Profile

Current Research

I am currently a researcher on the ERC-funded Feeding Anglo-Saxon England project (FeedSax), researching the agricultural 'revolution' that powered a demographic explosion in early medieval England. I work on the archaeobotanical side of the project, examining charred plant macrofossils and applying statistical analyses to the findings. I am also responsible for the digital aspects of the project, including the website and database. My previous research focused upon an earlier agricultural transition in Anglo-Saxon England, between the seventh and ninth centuries AD. I also currently serve as Treasurer on the Association for Environmental Archaeology committee.
