Steve has experience at many levels of fieldwork, having been employed in professional archaeology since 1994. Throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s, Steve was responsible for the field direction of excavations of several large late Iron Age and Roman settlements. These include two large rural Roman ‘small towns’ and a villa complex. Each project was completed over periods of several months with large field teams, and included significant volunteer involvement that had to be managed as part of the excavations. Following fieldwork, Steve had a role in the analysis and publication of each site, and was the lead author for the Higham Ferrers and Thurnham Villa monographs.
Steve also has a wide range of project management experience, with notable large projects being the investigation of an important copper works at Swansea, carriage widening around the M25, and the ongoing excavations at Great Western Park, Didcot. Each of these have provided challenging programmes, deadlines, excavation conditions and archaeological remains, which have been successfully managed to provide project delivery to the clients.
