Stuart Campbell – TrusteeAug 26th 2022 | Rob Longworth
Stuart Campbell is Professor of Archaeology at the University of Manchester, despite now living in Melrose. Having grown up in Peeblesshire, he completed both his MA and PhD at the University of Edinburgh (and in those days carefully avoided the Romans!). Much of his professional research has been in the Middle East, directing fieldwork in Turkey, Syria and Iraq that has ranged in date from the early Neolithic to the Parthian period. Most recently he has been working in southern Iraq.
However, he is excited to be renewing his involvement in Scottish archaeology after many years and can draw on his interests in cultural heritage, landscape archaeology, geophysics and drone survey, as well as welcoming a second chance to work with the unique Roman and Iron Age heritage of the Borders.
