Beginning as a schoolboy volunteer in the 1960s, my field archaeological career spanned some 20 years and included supervisory positions on mostly resucue excavations from Dover to Hadrian's Wall. At the same time I began writing and editing, in posts that varied from assistant to Big Chief I-SPY to editing corporate communications at a major London PR agency.
In the 1990s I worked in Vancouver, Canada, promoting and selling an advanced educational software system.
Recently I followed a freelance path, interrupted by a few years as marketing manager of a PC hardware manufacturer.
During 2009-10 I studied for an MA in historical archaeology at the University of Leicester.

My first degree was a BSc (Hons) ARCS in zoology from Imperial College, London.
Apart from historical archaeology, photography and writing, my passions include rambling and cycling, and performing classical and folk music.
