He has researched and written about medieval settlement and landscape, and sponsored the project on east midland settlements that resulted in Village, Hamlet and Field, and the Whittle wood Project from which came Medieval Villages in an English Landscape. He has worked on interdisciplinary studies of settlements in the west midlands, most recently at Hazleton (Glos). His book A Country Merchant, published by Oxford University Press in the summer of 2012, includes a new interpretation of villages, peasants, wool and sheep.
