ExpertiseKey staff Research Specialist
I am responsible for the management and delivery of Wessex Archaeology’s research reports as well as for co-ordinating the company’s use of scientific dating. Based in our Salisbury office, my experience includes managing a series of projects of national importance including the Amesbury Archer, the Drayton Cursus, and the Uffington White Horse. I have also co-authored, edited and acted as a major contributor to other important reports and books including Cliffs End, Barrow Hills, Radley, Ascott-under-Wychwood, the London Gateway, Imperial College Sports Ground, and the Devil’s Quoits. My infrastructure project experience includes the Wallingford Bypass, A46, A303 and acting as the prehistoric lead on the reporting of HS1.
I am part of the international award-winning Times of Their Lives project team run by Historic England and Cardiff University, and am an expert on prehistoric monuments and pottery. I have contributed to several research frameworks and guidance documents, and am a co-author of A Standard for Pottery Studies in Archaeology.
I am currently the Chair of the Prehistoric Ceramics Research Group, a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, a member of the Avebury and Stonehenge Archaeological and Historical Research Group, and an honorary research fellow at the University of Cardiff. My specialist research expertise includes prehistoric chronologies, the development of early pottery, Neolithic monuments, and the Beaker Period.
I am motivated by the opportunities to expand my knowledge and the sharing of this with colleagues and the wider community.
