Biography

In 1989, at the age of 16, I was a trainee on the Wroxeter archaeological field school run by Phil Barker, where I was taught the rigorous excavation and recording methods for which he was famous. Inspired by that experience, I went on to study for my undergraduate degree at Saint David's University College, Lampeter, Wales between 1991 and 1994. Following the completion of my Masters degree at the University of Southampton I worked full-time in commercial archaeology for a number of years, before returning to Southampton to study for my PhD.

I have worked for eleven commercial organisations across the UK and the Republic of Ireland and this experience contributed to my doctoral research project, an analysis of British 'developer-led' archaeology. My thesis was published by Oxbow Books in 2009, with a revised second edition in 2012.

After completing my PhD in 2006 I was employed by the Southampton City Council Archaeology Unit, and as an external advisor to the Institute for Archaeologists on 'Labour Market Intelligence 2007/8: Profiling the Profession 3'.

In 2002, while working for the Cambridge Archaeological Unit, I joined the team of the Anglo-Georgian Expedition to Nokalakevi, which had been established the previous year in collaboration with specialists from the Georgian National Museum in Tbilisi. I have been a Co-Director, and the lead British archaeologist, of the expedition since then and have trained over 200 Georgian and international Archaeology students. 

I joined the Archaeology Department at Winchester in April 2008 and teach on the BA, BSc and MA programmes, as well as supervising MRes and PhD research students (see below).
