Although my recently published book, Gods of Avalon Road is an urban fantasy, there are archaeological elements in the story, which were influenced by my former career as an Archaeologist. Since archaeology is still a major influence on my writing, I spent the summer break from my work in secondary school education doing research in the British library and Museum of London, in order to update my knowledge on the Roman occupation of London and Iron Age Britain. The latest promotional write-up for my novel appears on the QUB Archaeology and Palaeoecology Facebook page.
