His books include 'Technologies of Enchantment? Exploring Celtic Art 400 BC to AD 100' (2012, co-authored with Chris Gosden) and 'Neolithic Stepping Stones: excavation and survey within the western seaways of Britain, 2008-2014' (2017, co-authored with Fraser Sturt).

He has recently directed excavations in the Outer Hebrides, the Channel Islands, and the Isles of Scilly.
