​As an Old World prehistorian, Marshall’s research focuses on two issues: early hominid lifeways, and the origins and spread of pastoralism in Africa.

Marshall has explored these topics through survey and excavation, principally in the Loita-Mara area of southwestern Kenya, and through zooarchaeological studies of faunas excavated from archaeological sites.
