Andy Jones is a Reader in Archaeology at University of Southampton. After completing a PhD entitled ‘The biography of ceramics: food and culture in Late Neolithic Orkney’ (1997), he is currently exploring the sensual and visual aspects of material culture, and is especially interested in how this links with the mnemonic character of artefacts. Current research projects include the analysis of Early Bronze Age grave goods from southern England and Scotland from a visual culture perspective, and excavations in Argyll, southeast Scotland, which have revealed the first evidence for the construction of monuments in association with prehistoric rock art sites. His publications include ‘Colouring the past: the significance of colour in archaeological research’ (Berg, 2002); ‘Memory and Material Culture’ (CUP, 2007); ‘Animated images: images, agency and landscape in Kilmartin, Argyll, Scotland’ (Journal of Material Culture 11, 2006); and ‘Technologies of remembrance: memory, materiality and identity in Early Bronze Age Scotland’ (in Williams, ed., ‘Archaeologies of remembrance: death and memory in past societies’, Kluwer, 2003).
