In her research project ‘A Crimson Horizon- the Religious Landscapes of Warfare in Northern Britain, c.1050-1500’, she investigates the use and perceptions of sacred topographies, the spirituality and performance of rituals by medieval soldiers during conflicts in northern Britain by analysing conflict landscapes in the archaeological and historical evidence. Her research interest covers medieval belief and spirituality, material culture, perceptions of sacred places, spaces and landscapes.
