Colleges, School and Institutes

Research interests

Currently, Henry is involved in a range of projects that combine his research interests and expertise. Specific projects include:

  • The Stonehenge hidden landscapes project
  • The landscape archaeology of European bog bodies
  • Iconoclasm and European later prehistory
  • Causewayed enclosures on the edge of Europe

Henry has recently completed a project that focused on the investigation of landscape archaeology within the ‘hidden’ landscapes of peatlands, combining palaeoenvironmental analyses, chronological modelling, excavation, and GIS analysis, and a second project that investigated the later prehistory of the Waveney valley in East Anglia (both funded by Historic England). Previously, Henry has led projects focusing on the application of digital technologies within museums, for example, through the generation of a virtual museum of the Eton Myers Collection of ancient Egyptian art (funded by JISC).

Willingness to take PhD students


PhD projects

Henry can supervise postgraduate study in the areas of later prehistory, wetland archaeology, landscape archaeology and the application of digital and spatial technologies within heritage.

He currently supervises students researching digital approaches to conflict archaeology, the landscape archaeology of European bog bodies, predictive modelling of centres of power in Bronze Age Anatolia using GIS, valuing archives in the 21st century, the landscape archaeology of Neolithic causewayed enclosures, and the archaeology of Iron Age marsh-forts.
