Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



Originally studying the Natural Sciences (B.Sc. Hons. Zoology - 2006), I developed an interest in Archaeology and the operation of humans and human society (MA Archaeology - 2008). This interest, and a lot of luck, carried me to study Korean and East Asian archaeology, where I completed a further MA course in Seoul (MA Archaeology - 2015).

My current project focuses on central Korea and the formation of the state of Baekje, developing the concept of heterarchical forms of relation and examining whether this type of organisation played a significant role in the formation and operation of the Baekje state.
