Professor Alasdair Whittle
Alasdair Whittle specialises in the Neolithic period in Britain and Europe, and has researched across a wide range of themes and questions. He has excavated in Britain, Hungary and Germany. He has written major syntheses at a continental scale, but also numerous regional and site-based studies. Over the last 15 years, he has increasingly been concerned with the construction of robust and precise chronologies, through the application of formal chronological modelling to radiocarbon dates. Currently, with Alex Bayliss of Historic England, he leads the major ERC-funded project, The Times of Their Lives, which has numerous case studies in precise chronologies and their implications, across several regions and phases of Neolithic Europe.
