Key Facts:

Dr. Alex Brown is currently employed as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate on the Ecology of Crusading Project (2010-2014), funded by the European Research Council.

Dr Alex Brown's research interests centre on the application of palaeoecology as a tool for investigating past human-environment interactions over the course of the Holocene. Alex has over ten years experience working in intertidal and wetland landscapes, completing his PhD (2005) on the evidence for human impact on the prehistoric landscapes of the Severn Estuary (UK), linked to the NERC funded Mesolithic to Neolithic Coastal Environmental Change Project (directed by Professor Martin Bell). Alex is also co-director (with Martin Bell) of the Peterstone Palaeochannels Project (2006-2010) which has been investigating the traces of Bronze Age activity within the Welsh Severn Estuary.

Alex has also worked extensively across central and Eastern Europe, most recently as part of the Ecology of Crusading Project. He has a particular research interest in the ecology of frontier landscapes and the ecological responses to human agency and cultural change, currently focused on Medieval Europe. Alex is also developing research on the landscape impact of the Mongol invasions of central Europe.
