Charlie has a strong background in field archaeology, geophysics and forensic investigations having worked across the UK, Germany, Belgium, Poland, Ukraine and Republic of Kiribati in the central Pacific Ocean. He has worked on sites ranging from Prehistoric to 20th century and from geophysical surveys to watching briefs/evaluations to full scale excavations. Charlie has successfully supervised rural and urban excavations, including large scale infrastructure projects and significantly large cemetery sites.
After graduating from Cranfield University with an MSc in Forensic Archaeology and Anthropology Charlie worked for the Cranfield Forensic Institute as a geophysical surveyor undertaking a range of commercial and research projects across Europe including surveying WWI defences along the Western Front Line and relocating tunnel "Harry" in Stalagluft III, Poland. Charlie came to South Wales in 2013 to take up a CBA funded placement with the National Trust as a community archaeologist. Charlie initially joined the Field Services team in 2014 working on a range of commercial projects across West Wales before moving to London for two years where he continued to provide archaeological services but he is now back with the DAT Field Services since 2017.
In addition to this Charlie has provided his services to US based organisations assisting with the recovery and repatriation of Missing in Action servicemen from 20th century conflicts, which has included the forensic and archaeological excavation of battlefield sites and crashed military aircraft. He has worked with specialist Forensic Archaeology providers alongside UK police forces and regularly returns to Cranfield University to mentor students in the Forensic excavation of mass graves. Charlie is currently working with a number of Jewish organisations providing archaeological fieldwork and advice investigating culturally significant sites in Eastern Europe that were destroyed during the Holocaust.
