Ben has worked full time in UK and Indian Ocean archaeology for the past 6 years, spending time in Kuwait, Oman, India, Sri Lanka and the jewel of the mystic East, Cambridge. As well as running training excavations in Lincoln and Somerset, he has also made the debatably laudable decision to become an expert in Indian Ocean ceramics. He has also previously worked on large scale urban sites in London including ‘The Pompeii of the North’ at Bucklersbury. As well as the current project he is also involved in building recording in the U.A.E and the exportation and popularization of the single context recording system to the Arabian Gulf. He hopes to develop his knowledge of post-medieval archaeology (bricks and stuff). He hopes to also complete a small publication on the archaeological evidence for trade and exchange in the early period of the Port of London.
