Old Sarum Park
ExpertiseKey staff Research Specialist
I joined Wessex in 2004 as a lithics and prehistoric ceramics specialist working in the post-excavation department. In that capacity I analysed and published major assemblages of both flint and pottery from sites across southern Britain and further afield. For many years I have been involved with projects investigating the submerged archaeology of the English Channel and southern North Sea, and with the publication of major infrastructure projects such as T5 Heathrow and the East Kent Access Road.
A move into project management lead to the production of the PaMeLa database, which preserved the late Roger Jacobi's archive of Upper Paleolithic and Mesolithic finds in an on-line database, and of the recent Research Framework for the Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites World Heritage Site.
In my current role I lead the finds and environmental specialist team, managing the provision of advice and expertise to a wide variety of clients.
I have a PhD from the University of Southampton. My primary academic interests are in prehistoric mortuary practice, and in the human impacts of the emergence of a fully agricultural lifestyle at the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age.
