After completing a PhD at Newnham, I held a lectureship at Durham University for nine years, before returning to a full-time research role at the Cambridge Archaeological Unit in 2004, and then taking up the post of Admissions Tutor in 2009.

Research Interests

I am currently working on a number of publications of later Roman and Anglo-Saxon sites in Britain, including with Dr Charlotte Roberts and Dr Sarah Groves (both of Durham University) on the publication of the Anglo-Saxon Cemetery at Bamburgh, Northumberland. My volume on the Roman settlement and cemeteries at Mucking, Essex, is currently in press. I am also Chair of the Research and Academic Advisory Panel for the Staffordshire Hoard.
