I became interested in archaeology when I was nine during a school visit to St Albans/Verulamium in 1975.  I subsequently joined the Welwyn Archaeological Society later that year.  In 2009 I became the society's Director.  My career has included working from professional field units as well as academia and I have always kept strong links with what is now known as "community archaeology."  

I initially came to UCL as a PhD student in 1990, and then worked for the Celtic Inscribed Stones Project from 1996-1999, becoming a lecturer at the Institute at the end of the project.

During my PhD I started working in Romania initially concentrating on numismatic problems but later running a field project jointly with the Universities of Cambridge and Southampton at Noviodunum. 

From 2006 to 2019 I was a tutor on the US National Park Service's annual course on geophysical survey methods in archaeology.

In 2013 I founded the Community Archaeology Geophysics Group which has undertaken surveys on a wide variety of sites in the SE of England.  I now mainly work on sites in and around Hertfordshire.

Research Summary

My research principally covers (a) the application of geophysical survey methods in archaeology; (b) statistical approaches to archaeological and especially numismatic problems (c) applied numismatics of the late Iron Age and Roman periods, especially the analysis of Roman Republican coin hoards (d) the archaeology and history of Hertfordshire and (e) late Iron Age and Roman archaeology, principally in the UK and Romania.

Teaching Summary
My teaching concentrates on two areas: archaeological methods and late Iron Age / Roman archaeology including numismatics.  I especially cover geophysical survey methods as well as statistics, especially multivariate exploratory methods, in archaeology.
