Don is a geologist with more than 50 years experience in the discovery, mining and management of mineral resource projects in Australia and overseas. In the mid-2000s he expanded his interests into the fields of Aerial Archaeology, Geoarchaeology, Palaeolandscape, and Ancient History, with a particular focus on Jordan. Participation in ground and airborne (APAAME) surveys in Jordan led to the initiation of the Jarash Water Project (JWP) in 2012, a project researching the ancient water management system to the Greco-Roman Decapolis city of Gerasa (modern Jarash) under his direction. JWP publications include studies on the water management system, landscape history, occupational history, Christian churches, and the archaeological contributions of early 19th century visitors.
His interests recently expanded into Saudi Arabia where he is involved in the AAKSAU and AAKSAK aerial survey projects and brings his geological experience to bear on studies of the mining heritage and landscape history.
