I am currently seconded 80% to the Faculty as Associate Dean for Education, but maintain an active interest in Archaeology, particularly Iberian later prehistory. In collaboration with Prof Leonardo Garcia Sanjuan of the University of Seville I co-directed excavations at the Peña de los Enamorados, near Antequera, Spain in 2020 and will be joining Dr Marta Diaz Guardamino (Durham University) and Leo Garcia in June 2022 to help investigate the landscape setting of a later Bronze Age 'Warrior Stele' at Cañaveral de Leon.
Current PhD Students
As Associate Dean for Education in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, I lead on all aspects of Education Strategy within the Faculty. I am also currently sponsor of the Faculty's Academic Renewal Project and the University's Reducing Curriculum Complexity project.
I completed my BSc in Archaeology at University College Cardiff in 1988 and came to Southampton to study for an MSc in Archaeological Computing which I completed in 1989. That was followed by a PhD that took me into the emerging field of Geographic Information Systems and their application to Archaeology, completed in 1993. I joined the academic staff in the Department of Archaeology in 1994.
