I develop research projects and studentships with collaborative partners in Higher Education and the wider archaeology sector for MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology), the only archaeology unit that is a UKRI Independent Research Organisation. I was previously Business Development Executive (Heritage) at the University of Leicester, developing collaborative research, consultancy, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and contract research projects between organisations in the heritage sector and academic staff in the Schools of Archaeology & Ancient History, History, Arts, and Museum Studies. These knowledge exchange activities ensure that teaching and research into heritage and the historic environment continues to inform, and be informed by, professional practice. I undertook my PhD at Leicester’s Centre for Historical Archaeology, in the School of Archaeology & Ancient History, where I contributed to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Historical Archaeology. Before coming to Leicester I was Senior Archaeologist in the Built Heritage department at MOLA and previously worked for archaeology units across Britain. I am a full Member of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists (MCIfA), Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) and Hon. Secretary of the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology.

…I received a BA in Archaeology from Boston University and an MA in Archaeology from University College London. I then completed an MSc conservation at University College London focusing on the conservation of archaeological and ethnographic objects. I’m currently working towards my PhD at the Laboratory of Archaeometry, Univ. of the Peloponnese….

I am archaeological conservator specializing in the conservation of inorganic materials, mainly metals and glass.  My research interests are in the deterioration of archaeological materials and technical studies of archaeological objects. I am currently completing a PhD focusing on the technology and trade of Late Bronze Age glass in the Eastern Mediterranean and Aegean with a focus on material from sites on the periphery or outside palatial Mycenaean Greece. I also work as a conservator on several archaeological excavations and am currently working on projects in Greece and Peru.

MemberJonathan Weiland

Jon’s research uses traditional classics scholarship, bioarchaeology and digital research methods, to investigate the darker aspects of the ancient world, topics like poverty, disease, slavery and violence.  His master’s thesis explored how malaria affected the landscapes of Roman Italy.  His dissertation focuses on the archaeology of what some refer to as the “Invisible Romans,” the people with the lowest socio-economic status in Italy, such as slaves and peasants.  His other projects include developing effective low-cost 3D modeling techniques for documenting archaeological evidence and using GIS to model ancient travel and exchange. Jon has worked for the Midwest Archaeological Center of the National Park Service, the Archaeological Mapping Lab at the University of Pennsylvania’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, and in Archaeological Collections at the Arizona State Museum.  He has participated in archaeological investigations in Italy, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Mexico, Peru, and at several locations in the United States. In his free time Jon enjoys travel, photography, rambling conversation, excessively long walks and binge watching good TV.
