Research Summary

Tom Dawson’s research focuses on current and future coastal processes and archaeological sites around the entire Scottish coast. Climate change studies suggest that coastal areas will be heavily impacted upon by sea level rise and an increasing number of more intense storms. This will exacerbate erosion, a problem that is already affecting large areas. Dawson works with the public to raise awareness of the problem through campaigns and active engagement. He encourages individuals and communities to record, monitor and excavate threatened sites and to present their findings to wider audiences. His research helps to plan for the sustainable management of archaeological remains for future generations.
