Gustav Milne

Gustav Milne worked as a professional rescue archaeologist with the Museum of London’s Department of Urban Archaeology from 1973 to 1993 and the site manuals they produced, to which he contributed, are now used across the UK and have been adapted for use internationally. The museum team was also at the forefront of harbour archaeology and, following on from a series of pioneering excavations he supervised, he facilitated the organisation of a series of international conferences on this theme.

Since 1991 he lectured at the UCL Institute of Archaeology, taking up a permanent contract in 1993. He also served as a consultant for the Royal Commission Historical Monuments (England) and in 1993 set up the Thames Archaeological Survey, with support from the Environment Agency and English Heritage, the Museum of London and UCL.

In 2008 he retired from his full-time teaching post, but continues to teach part time, while project-managing the ‘Thames Discovery Programme’, a community archaeology project. He is currently also Project Leader of the CITiZAN Project.

At the Institute he currently co-ordinates the ARCL6003 course – Archaeology of London before the Great Fire and is also working with Dean Sully on the Gresham Ship Project and with Matt Pope on the Evolutionary Determinants of Health Project
