Who Are We?

A number of other specialists are called on when required but the core team and their areas of expertise shown below reflect the wide-ranging nature of the investigations. The majority are based at the University of Reading and QUEST but a substantial contribution of aerial, earthwork and geophysical expertise has been made by Historic England, for which we are very grateful. The opportunity to work in close partnership with them and in consultation with the West Berkshire and Hampshire archaeological services has greatly benefitted the project and ensures that we are engaging with wider matters such as local and national planning policy, designation and feeding knowledge across the sectors.
