1275 Lorraine Mepham

Lorraine has worked for Wessex Archaeology since 1985. Since that time she has built up her expertise in artefact research, in particular in the field of ceramics, and is now a nationally recognised leading specialist in pottery of the later prehistoric and post-Roman periods, as well as covering many other finds types (other ceramics, glass, clay pipes, small finds etc.). Her extensive publication record includes reports on large ceramic assemblages from Salisbury, Carisbrooke Castle (Isle of Wight), the High Speed 1 Rail Link (Kent and Essex), and Canterbury. She is a regular presenter of lectures, seminars and day schools on the subject of finds to archaeological groups, local societies and other members of the public. Lorraine also has considerable experience in the preparation and deposition of archaeological archives.
