I am an archaeological scientist with a PhD in Earth Resistance and for 18 years I co-owned the largest commercial company dedicated to archaeological geophysics in the UK. I am currently Chair of ISAP and I was previously the editor of the journal Archaeological Prospection.
In the summer of 2007 I was awarded an Honorary Doctorate for popularising archaeological geophysics via Time Team and through other media opportunities. I teach both undergraduate and MSc students.
My core research interests are based on the fundamental understanding that geophysical data can aide archaeology in the understanding of the life and culture of ancient peoples. In particular I am interested in challenging environments where technical excellence and novel methodological approaches can lead to enhanced interpretation of past environments.
