Holding a BA in Archaeology and a PhD in Biological Anthropology from the University of Bristol, Louise has over 20 years' experience in the excavation and analysis of human remains from archaeological sites. As Head of Burials, Louise leads and manages a team dedicated to all aspects of burial archaeology, providing expert guidance, advice, consultancy and quality assurance on burial-related projects.
Louise directed the excavation and analysis of WWI mass graves in Fromelles, France and subsequently served on the Joint Australian and British Government identification board. She has contributed numerous osteology reports on assemblages both large and small and dating from prehistory to early modern, to publications, and has published on peri-mortem trauma. Louise is a member of the Institute for Archaeologists (MIfA) and the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology (BABAO), and is Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Reading.
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).
