Ed working on his excavation skills.


I reside currently in East Malling and my family has many ties to the county of Kent with my family being owners of the village store in Otford from the Mod 1800’s to the early 1970’s. I was educated at East Malling Secondary Modern and West Kent college – I always had a keen interest in 20th Century world history and a childhood fascination with archaeology. I have spent my career in Payroll eventually becoming Head of Payroll for Burberry. I am currently working a Payroll manager for mental Health company.


I am a member of the Discover Roman Otford Project and am looking forward to the 2022 excavation season. I am keen to see the Society become more mainstream and attract people from all walks of life.


I feel archaeology offers one of the best insights into who we are as people and how we operate as a society/culture.
