I represent the Bradford-based PhD on the project, and will be specifically looking at the effects of soil moisture variation and seasonality on the contrast properties of archaeological residues. These are complex and, from a geophysical standpoint, are vital to the understanding of detection. I have an (archaeological) geophysics background, having worked in the past as a Terrestrial Geophysicist for the British School at Rome and at Wessex Archaeology which led to my most recent role as the Project Officer of the Silchester Hinterland Project at the University of Reading. I recently graduated with an MSc. in Archaeological Prospection from the University of Bradford, and currently hold the position of Editor for the International Society for Archaeological Prospection (ISAP).
I am excited by the opportunity the DART project presents, being able to collaborate with others on this major project, to help better understand these important variables and how they differently affect various means of archaeological prospection.
