Head of IT
Paul has Group responsibility for the support of OA’s IT systems and users, in all OA offices and sites in the UK and abroad. He manages a small team of technical specialists based in Oxford and elsewhere.
Paul has been continuously employed in archaeology since the late 1970s, with breaks to gain archaeology degrees from Durham and Leicester universities. Between running urban excavations, Paul also became a medieval pottery specialist, which involved doing a lot of hard sums. One day in 1982 somebody showed him a clever toy to do the sums for him, and the rest is history. Ever since then, he has been working with computer systems in archaeology, principally in Stamford, Lincoln, and Oxford.
