From a developmental perspective, the lessons learned in bullying within peer relationships generalize to other developmentally significant relationships, such as romantic and familial relationships.
I have conducted a 7 year longitudinal study aimed at understanding the biological, psychological, and social factors related to bullying problems.

His most recent book is Quaternary Dating Methods, (John Wiley, Chichester & New York, 2005).
He has published more than 140 scientific papers and other contributions, and is co-author of two Quaternary textbooks: Reconstructing Quaternary Environments (with John Lowe), (1st edition, Longman, 1984; 2nd edition, Addison-Wesley-Longman, 1997), and Late Quaternary Environmental Change: Physical and Human Perspectives (with Martin Bell), (1st edition, Longman, 1992; 2nd edition, Pearson International, 2005). Formal subdivision of the Holocene Series/ Epoch: a Discussion Paper by a Working Group of INTIMATE (Integration of ice-core marine and terrestrial records) and the Subcommission on Quaternary Stratigraphy (International Commission on Stratigraphy).
He was a member of the NERC Earth Sciences Peer Review Committee (1999-2002), of the Services Review Group (2001), and of the EFCHED (Environmental Factors in the Chronology of Human Evolution and Dispersal) Steering Committee (2001-2006).
He has been President of the Quaternary Research Association of Great Britain (1999-2002), and Editor of (1995-1999).
The team of scientists includes researchers from UCL, University of Manchester, Bournemouth University, University of Southampton, University of Leicester, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, and Dyfed Archaeological Trust.
The very large standing stones at Stonehenge are of ‘sarsen’, a local sandstone, but the smaller ones, known as ‘bluestones’, come from the Preseli hills in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.He continues to serve on the Editorial Board of Journal of Quaternary Science (John Wiley) and is a former member of the Editorial Board of Quaternary Science Reviews (Elsevier: 2000-2005). He was the European co-ordinator for the IGCP-253 Termination of the Pleistocene ‘North Atlantic Seaboard Program’ (1990-1994), and co-founder, in 1995 of INTIMATE (Integration of Ice core, Marine and Terrestrial Records), now a core program of the INQUA (International Union for Quaternary Research) Palaeoclimate Commission. Excavation of two quarries in Wales by a UCL-led team of archaeologists and geologists has confirmed they are sources of Stonehenge’s ‘bluestones’– and shed light on how they were quarried and transported.New research by the team published today in Antiquity presents detailed evidence of prehistoric quarrying in the Preseli hills in Pembrokeshire, helping to answer long-standing questions about why, when and how Stonehenge was built.The geologists have been able to lead us to the actual outcrops where Stonehenge’s stones were extracted.” The Stonehenge bluestones are of volcanic and igneous rocks, the most common of which are called dolerite and rhyolite.
