I am currently researching the application of semantic and geosemantic technologies for archaeological research, based in the Hypermedia Research Group at the University of South Wales. For more information, see my Archaeogeomancy website and follow the GSTAR links. I am currently studying for a PhD in Computer Science, the project titled ‘GeoSemantic Technologies for Archaeological Research. Previously I have worked in the field of digital heritage, specialising in spatial technologies, for Wessex Archaeology, exegesis SDM, University of Southampton and English Heritage. As well as my doctoral research on geosemantic technologies, I have research interests covering the field of spatial technologies in archaeology including GIS, mobile GIS, laser scanning, RTI, photogrammetry, computational photography. My archaeological focus centres on the development of landscapes in prehistory and I have been privileged to manage the Stonehenge & Avebury World Heritage Site GIS for English Heritage, working on most of the development schemes relating to visitor centres and road schemes.
