Hi, I'm James Miles and I studied Ba Archaeology, MSc Archaeological Computing (Virtual Pasts), PhD Archaeology within Archaeology at the University of Southampton.

I have been fortunate enough to study at an Undergraduate, Masters and a Post graduate level at the University of Southampton......Studying at Southampton has given me numerous opportunities to develop my skills through the many years that I have spent here.

I have been fortunate enough to study at an Undergraduate, Masters and a Post graduate level at the University of Southampton. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do after my undergraduate course had finished but I felt that following my interest in Computational Archaeology would be the best option for me. Completing my masters degree allowed me to focus on a specific area of interest, namely 3D recording, and it has enabled me to not only develop a PhD topic around the subject but it has allowed me to develop my creative passion within archaeology.

Studying at Southampton has given me numerous opportunities to develop my skills through the many years that I have spent here. I have worked all over world on key research projects which are now at the forefront of modern day computational archaeology. The main project that I am currently involved in, besides my PhD, is Portus. The Portus project is a multidisciplinary research project that has enabled me to further develop my skills as an archaeologist and has allowed me create new methods of research involving computational approaches in archaeology. The Portus project is a fantastic project to be involved in and it is a privilege to be able to say that I have worked on this important Roman site. The Portus project has allowed me to work with a number of leading Roman experts, it has created a number of teaching opportunities through the research led teaching that takes place on site, and it has in turn allowed me to become an expert in my own right in the use of 3D recording within archaeology. The involvement in this project and tutorage of the staff involved has led onto personal publications, press releases and future research collaborations. Studying at the University of Southampton was one of the best decisions that I have made and I would recommend it to anyone!
