Dr Leo Webley

Biography

I completed my PhD research on the social archaeology of the household in Iron Age northern Europe (University of Cambridge) in 2002. I then worked in development-led archaeology, latterly as a Post-excavation Project Manager for Oxford Archaeology. During this time I was involved in the analysis and publication of numerous prehistoric sites in southern Britain. From 2008 onwards I worked on two major research projects investigating social developments in prehistoric Europe. The first of these aimed to synthesise The later prehistory of northwest Europe using the evidence of recent fieldwork (Universities of Reading and Leicester; with Richard Bradley, Colin Haselgrove and Marc Vander Linden). The second project, Mint Condition, investigated the earliest adoption of coinage in Iron Age temperate Europe (University of Leicester; with Colin Haselgrove). In October 2014 I began work at Bristol on a new project investigating the social context of non-ferrous metalworking in Bronze Age and Iron Age northwest Europe (with Joanna Bruck and Sophia Adams).
