Simon’s research focuses upon the study of submerged prehistoric landscapes and marine archaeology worldwide. Simon has a particular interest in the Mesolithic landscape of the southern North Sea and the effects of its submergence on the cultures surrounding the North Sea basin. Current research projects being undertaken are the ‘West Coast Palaeolandscapes Project’ and ‘Between the salt water and the sea strand: A comparative study of inundated marine landscapes'.
