Head of Buildings
Julian has worked on medieval houses, castles, cathedrals, and country houses, and is interested both in the archaeology of buildings and the link between documentary history and extant remains of the past. With an interest in urban and rural landscapes, he has examined the relationship between places, their physical remains and written history, and has published numerous studies.
He often undertakes investigation and assessment of historic buildings and places for planning purposes, and has been involved in a series of Conservation Plans for national monuments (castles, country houses and cathedrals), for National Trust, English Heritage and others, and planning assessments of greater and lesser buildings of all types and periods.
Julian is involved in teaching and outreach activities, and is a frequent public speaker on many aspects of the historic environment. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (FSA), has often appeared as an expert witness at public inquiries and planning hearings. He is Chairman of the Chichester Cathedral Fabric Committee (FAC).
Jonathan (Jon) Gill
Jon has worked in Oxford Archaeology’s Historic Buildings Department since 1998, and he particularly specialises in the investigation of post-medieval and modern buildings. He holds a BA in Architecture, as well as a Masters Degree in Industrial Archaeology from the Ironbridge Institute, and he is a Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (MCIfA).
Jon helps to coordinate the overall department’s workload, as well as manages individual projects, undertakes on-site investigations, writes reports and tenders for new work. He undertakes a wide range of projects, including conservation management plans, impact assessments, environmental statements, large-scale building recording prior to developments, and small-scale assessments to assist in planning applications. While with OA, Jon has worked on scheduled Cold War sites, Royal Palaces, airfields, industrial complexes, gunpowder factories, grand country houses, and much more humble dwellings.
Senior Project Manager
Jane has worked for OA’s Historic Buildings department since 2003 and specialises in the recording and interpretation of industrial and military structures.
She graduated from Birmingham University in 1996 in social and economic history, and then in 1998 completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Archaeology at Oxford University Department of Continuing Education. Jane has since completed a Masters degree in Industrial Archaeology at Birmingham University.
Since joining OA, Jane has undertaken a wide range of building recording and industrial archaeology projects. Jane specialises in the characterisation of military landscape, working at former RAF Upper Heyford and MOD Corsham, among other sites. Jane has also prepared conservation plans, rapid assessments of the significance of structures to inform planning applications, and environmental impact assessments, and carried out work on industrial landscapes.
Jamie Quartermaine (BA Hons, Surv Dip, MCIfA) has been a project officer and then project manager at OA North since 1984, and has considerable experience of all aspects of commercial archaeology. He has specialised in landscape recording and building surveys, and is one of the leading authorities in the study of archaeological landscapes. He has published monographs on the archaeological landscapes of the Lake District and the archaeology of Thomas Telford’s Holyhead road through North Wales.
Jamie is a qualified land surveyor, and has striven to develop landscape and building recording techniques, which vary from the introduction of GPS techniques in the early 1990s, to laser scanning, LiDAR, GIS and, more recently, modern photogrammetry techniques. He has extensive experience of training in all aspects of digital recording and was involved in the training of a Nepalese survey team to undertake a comprehensive recording programme of a large 17th-century palace on the outskirts of Kathmandu.
Alison holds a BA in Archaeology from the University of York and an MA in Reseach in Archaeology from the University of Reading. She has been with the buildings department at OA since 2006 and has carried out many archaeological surveys and heritage statements with impact assessments on a wide variety of projects, among them brick-built motorway bridges, royal palaces, and castles. Alison also undertakes some post-excavation work on building materials, particularly bricks and architectural stonework.

Angela holds a BSc (Hons) in Building Surveying, and following several years working in reactive and planned maintenance, she changed careers and worked in archaeological fieldwork, followed by archival collections. In between digging, Angela gained a Postgraduate Certificate in Architectural History from the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education. She joined OA's Buildings Archaeology department in 2014 and has carried out building investigation and recording projects on buildings ranging from country houses to gasholders and has also produced numerous heritage statements and impact assessments.
