Meet Our Staff
Archaeology South-East offers a comprehensive range of research services in archaeology and heritage management, delivered by the professional staff of Britain's leading university department of Archaeology. We have been helping construction industry clients and local communities make sense of the historic environment for over forty years.
I am lucky to work within one of the world’s leading research Universities, having spent fifty years learning my archaeological tradecraft world-wide. The most important part of my job is making sure that we have the right balance of skills for the work that we do. ASE works in an incredibly diverse and fast-changing area of research, drawing on a wide range of technical and practical skills. Our fieldwork relies on a quick thinking ability to draw preliminary conclusions from fragmentary clues, supported by the hard investigative science of lab work. The results need to be presented clearly and concisely to diverse audiences, informed by the latest academic research. Above all we need to meet the needs of the job: on time, to specification and to budget. Good archaeological results are the result of carefully managed programmes of research, undertaken by staff properly equipped and trained for the job. This is what the ASE team strives to deliver.
