Professor in Bioarchaeology, Head of Archaeology and Conservation, Cardiff University

I am an archaeologist, with over 35 years of experience in professional, field and academic archaeology. I specialise in -

Archaeological science (particularly zooarchaeology and bioarchaeology).
The archaeology of islands and coasts.
Heritage management and archaeological practice.
Contemporary and historical archaeology.
I am Head of Section for Archaeology and Conservation, looking after @30 staff and @300 students s I am a member of the AHRC Peer Review Colledge, a Vice-President of the Prehistoric Society, the driving force behind Guerilla Archaeology (GA) and a founding member of the Festivals Research Group. I served as a full panel member for Unit of Assessment 15, Archaeology in REF2021.

I created Guerilla Archaeology to share my passion for the past with the public. I combine my specialist knowledge of archaeology with my love of the creative arts in festival outreach. From Shamans to Bog Bodies to Stonehengeburys, our innovative workshops were been voted as one of the 'top 20 things to do at Glastonbury 2017' and each year motivate thousands of people to engage with the past.
