About Me

I am a freelance heritage consultant, lecturer and writer with over 20 years’ experience in the academic, commercial and local authority heritage sectors.

As a consultant, I provide heritage planning advice and services to a wide range of clients, including landowners, developers and local planning authorities. I also act as an expert witness in planning appeals, court cases and Public Inquiries. I am an experienced project manager with particular expertise in the development and management of large-scale, multi-disciplinary, heritage projects. I have a proven track record of successfully completing a wide range of projects on time and within budget.

As a lecturer, I speak regularly on a wide range of archaeological and historical subjects to groups and societies across the eastern region and beyond. I have considerable experience of developing and delivering classroom- and field-based training programmes for a range of ages and abilities, including schoolchildren, undergraduate and post-graduate students, and adult learners.

As a writer, I have published extensively on heritage-related subjects in numerous books and journals, as well as more popular pieces. I am the author of The Archaeology of the East Anglian Conversion (2010) and The Book of Happisburgh (2011) and from 2006–13 was the editor of the peer-reviewed journal Norfolk Archaeology. I have considerable experience of creating digital heritage resources in a variety of media.

I am an elected Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London and a Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists.
