Biography

Studying at University of Toronto (Hons. BA) and the Institute of Archaeology, University of London (MA, Later European Prehistory), I’ve dug sites in Britain since the mid ‘70s (e.g. Winchester & Fengate) and spent the 1980s directing excavations for the Museum of London and co-directing Cambridge’s Haddenham Project. Together with Ian Hodder, in 1990 I co-founded the University’s Cambridge Archaeological Unit.

Since 1992 I have been a full member of the Chartered Institute for Field Archaeologists and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London in 2001. Between 2004 and 2012 I was a member of the directorial board of Antiquity, and since 2008 served on the board of the Bulletin of the History of Archaeology. Between 2015 and 2018 I was a Vice-President of the Prehistoric Society and, In 2018, was elected to the British Academy.

Research

My research interests are wide-ranging, but primarily lie in later European Prehistoric/Roman settlement and landscape archaeology, particularly that of Eastern England and the Fenlands. Aside from widely researching the discipline’s historiography, I have also directed and published overseas projects arising from fieldwork in Inner Mongolia, the Nepalese Himalayas and, currently, the Cape Verde Islands.

Other Professional Activities

Apart from being affiliated researcher in the University of Toronto’s Department of Anthropology, I am on the board of the Cambridge Heritage Research Centre and a member of the National Museum of Scotland’s AHRC-funded Baggage and Belonging project concerned with the status of ethnographic objects in Britain’s military museums. Over the last eight years I have been an invited participant in Oxford University’s ‘Grey Literature’ group overviewing the future of archaeological publication and synthesis in England. Similarly, I was the appointed official Eastern England ‘advocate’ for the University of Reading’s Roman Countryside review programme. By the invitation of Historic England and ALGO County Curators Group, I have recently issued the Late Iron Age and Romano-British portions of the Eastern Counties Regional Research Framework.
