Short profile:

Edward started as the Finds Liaison Officer for Oxfordshire in 2020 following volunteering with the PAS in Durham during his undergraduate studies and working as a Finds Liaison Assistant for Devon and Somerset. He has an undergraduate degree, masters and PhD in Archaeology from Durham University. He has also worked as a community archaeologist on excavations across England and worked with Historic England on a non-invasive survey placement.

Edward loves studying and writing reports for artefacts of all time periods. He is particularly passionate about the meta-analysis of legacy datasets (a posh way of saying looking at the patterns we can see in big datasets just like the PAS database!) and in understanding the nature scale and effects of the large social transformations occurring in Britain during the Bronze Age through integrating, burial, settlements, artefacts and landscape evidence.

Edward is based at the Museum Resource Centre between Standlake and Witney but also visits museums across the county so keep your eyes posted for an updated plan for finds surgeries! We also can record artefacts at the Museum Resource Centre but please email or telephone in advance to book an appointment so Edward can make sure he's in.
