Stephen graduated from the University of York in 1998 with a BSc in Archaeology and, in 2000, an MSc in Human Palaeoecology. Since joining OA North in 2005 he has managed a wide range of projects, from tender stage, through fieldwork, assessment and analysis, to publication.

Major fieldwork and post-excavation projects include the second stage of excavation within and around the Furness Abbey presbytery (Cumbria), and the Easington to Paull Natural Gas Pipeline (East Yorkshire). Among Stephen's diverse interests is a peculiar fascination with funerary archaeology and human osteology, and he has managed substantial fieldwork and post-excavation investigations within the crowded post-medieval and industrial-period cemeteries at Coronation Street, South Shields (Tyne and Wear), and Redearth, Darwen (Lancashire).

Mairead has worked as a palynologist for 30 years, with experience in both industry and research. She joined BP Exploration and Research in 1989, taking part in scientific expeditions to the Yemeni desert and the Pontide Mountains in Turkey. After relocating to the north of England, Mairead joined a research team at Durham University in 1994, investigating sea level changes and landscape evolution along the west coast of the USA, NW Scotland, the Humber estuary and Swale-Ure washlands. Since joining OAN in 2010, Mairead has worked on diverse projects for all three offices, and is particularly pleased to add identification and interpretation of fungal spores as a routine part of palynological assessments and analysis, as well as assessment and analysis of water-logged plant remains, to these projects.

Mairead obtained her degree in Natural Sciences from Trinity College, Dublin (1982), followed by an MSc in palynology from the University of Sheffield (1983).
