Director Fieldwork Archaeology

I joined Wessex Archaeology in 1990 becoming Regional Director for the Southern region in 2013. In my current role, I oversee all projects and field operations out of Salisbury head office and the work done through the London & South East and West offices respectively.

As a lifelong archaeologist, my specialisms over the years have been fieldwork and project management. My project management experience at Wessex Archaeology has involved infrastructure projects, including the fieldwork and post-excavation phases for both Sections 1 and 2 of HS1, the M6 Toll and most recently the geoarchaeological assessment and analysis of Olympic Park. In a previous role as Commercial Development Manager, I worked on a company-wide project management team to focus on business development and client liaison and was responsible for the development of Wessex Archaeology’s business partnership with ecologists Thomson Ecology.

From my earliest experiences working with the Central Excavation Unit on the circuit, I have always been motivated by people: not just the privilege of working with colleagues who are overwhelmingly driven by a passion for what they do, but the almost unrivalled opportunity to glimpse into the ordinary day to day lives of the people that we study. Outside of work, my family keeps me busy enough, but in my spare time I travel regularly in support of my home town football club Colchester United (I can take the despair, it’s the hope that gets you), absolutely love cooking, and particularly if the latter is accompanied by a movie or music.
