I’m Hannah Brown, a PhD student at the University of Bradford. I’ve followed a slightly circuitous route to end up in landscape archaeology – starting with an undergraduate degree in Modern History from the University of Oxford (‘Modern’ in Oxford is defined as ‘anything since the Romans’, so it involved lots of 19/20th century European subjects as well as a spectrum of odds and ends). I moved on to an MA in Medieval Studies at the University of York. I focussed primarily on early medieval modules, and my dissertation took the form of a desk based assessment of a Viking camp site in Lincolnshire, which has lead to my involvement in the Torksey Project since. I then found out that it was possible to study for an MSc in archaeological geophysics at Bradford University, which I did, and subsequently worked in commercial geophysics for a couple of years before the opportunity to do this PhD turned up.
