Personal profile

Biography

I was an Army Officer for 15 years (Royal Tank Regiment), a Commercial Archaeologist for 13 years (just as it was starting), Professor of Archaeology at the University of York for 22 years (steep learning curve - I don't have a degree in archaeology) and Editor of Antiquityfor 10 years. Since 2008 I have been a full-time professional writer, public speaker and broadcaster.

My research has been mainly in England, Scotland, France, Italy and Algeria - my best known excavations were at the seventh-century royal burial ground at Sutton Hoo in Suffolk and the eighth-century Pictish Monastery at Portmahomack, Easter Ross.  I am now directing a project entitled The Archaeology of Regime Change in Sicily with Alessandra Molinari, University of Rome Tor Vegata (see www.sicily in transition.org).

I am Professor emeritus at the University of York and Chairman of the commercial archaeology company FAS-Heritage Ltd.

I live in Ellerton, East Yorkshire with Madeleine Hummler an archaeologist and editor. Contact me at email martin.carver@york.ac.uk.
