I have a particular interest in historic landscape and landscape research, but I am extremely versatile and have carried out extensive media research in my field, especially for Channel Four's 'Time Team' TV programme. For commercial clients who are involved in property development, I can offer an efficient service producing high-quality archaeological desk-based assessments, and historic landcape analysis. As a sole trader, my rates are extremely competitive when compared to those of the larger archaeological units, who have extensive overheads to cover. I am very happy to supply my CV on request, and can of course give suitable references. Likewise I can supply copies of any of my extensive published academic research work, or of the numerous Desk-Based reports which I have produced to date. I also have some experience of historic buildings analysis.
Area Covered: Mainly West Country, but prepared to accept commissions from anywhere in the country.
