Darko worked in the commercial archaeology sector with Oxford Archaeology (1999-2005) between his undergraduate and PhD degrees at Reading. His PhD was on the application of geophysical techniques in the investigation of cultural landscapes in the Hebrides, western Scotland. Over the last 20 years he has worked on numerous research projects on the islands of Tiree, Coll, Mull, Islay and Arran, as well as abroad in Jordan, Turkey and across southeast and central Europe. He was Director of Archaeology for Islay Heritage (2017-2021), delivering a range of research and community projects including University of Reading’s Dunyvaig Castle Field School.  He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and a Co-lead on the Awakening the Sleeping Giants Project on Arran.
