Subjects: Archaeology


I have conducted geophysical surveys with on sites across the United Kingdom. In 2003, I surveyed and excavated a Roman Villa at Ford in north Pembrokeshire and have recently founded the Cherwell Romano-British Archaeology Project, investigating rural settlements in the region.

Presently, I am also investigating the Roman road network in Pembrokeshire. This is challenging to say the least, but rewarding. It is becoming increasingly clear, through new discoveries in the rural sphere, that the region was thoroughly Romanised.
