Ben graduated from Reading University in 1990 with a BA (Hons) in Archaeology. He joined Oxford Archaeology in 1996, and serves as a Senior Project Manager and Term Contract Manager for the Historic Royal Palaces. He is a Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (MCIfA).
Ben has particular strengths in the management, organisation, execution and delivery of large and medium scale excavation and post-excavation projects on urban, and built environment sites where archaeological work has to dovetail with that of demolition/remediation and construction contractors. He has a good understanding of how archaeology relates to, and affects, other disciplines, and can communicate well with all project stakeholders, such as engineers, architects, local authorities, and English Heritage.
His many years in the profession allow him to be highly versatile, maintain a clear focus on the implications of time and budgetary constraints, and deliver high quality from a project’s conception to its completion.
Carl has over 24 years’ experience as an archaeologist and has worked at Oxford Archaeology since 2004. As a Senior Project Manager, he specialises in the management of complex wetland investigations, urban excavations and infrastructure projects like HS2.

He has also been involved in several long-term Historic England’s research projects on the impacts of modern farming techniques on buried archaeology (COSMIC, NHPP) and has contributed to national guidance papers on Geoarchaeology, Deposit Modelling and the Management of lithic Scatters.
Carl holds a BA (Hons) from University of Wales, Lampeter, and a MSc in geoarchaeology from Reading.
