Blick Mead and Stonehenge Updates
Presented by
David Jacques
Senior Research Fellow of Archaeology, University of Buckingham
David was educated at Middlesex University and Wolfson College, Cambridge. He was a Fulbright Professor at Polk State College in 1995. His field of research explores the use of the Stonehenge landscape in the Mesolithic period (8500BC-4000BC). Since 2005 he has been the Project Director of an internationally significant Mesolithic archaeological site, Blick Mead, which is located one mile from Stonehenge. His team has discovered the oldest settlement in the Stonehenge area, the longest continually occupied site in the United Kingdom, as well as the communities which built the first monuments at Stonehenge. David has published in the Prehistoric Society’s PAST Journal, Current Archaeology Magazine, and via the Open University. In 2018, his project at Blick Mead won ‘Research Project of the Year 2018’ by Current Archaeology Magazine. Under David’s direction, the team’s work has also been featured on BBC 4’s ‘Flying Archaeologist’ series, regional BBC, and ITV output.
