Professor Christopher Gaffney
Chris Gaffney is an archaeological scientist with a background in prospecting; he is the Co-Director of the Visualising Heritage group at the University of Bradford. His research is focussed on the fundamental understanding that geophysical and other, essentially digital, data can aide archaeology in the understanding of the life and culture of ancient peoples. In particular, he is interested in challenging environments where technical excellence and novel methodological approaches can lead to enhanced interpretation of past environments. The breadth of his interests incorporate iconic landscapes, such as the hinterland of Stonehenge, to contemporary sites, such as redundant Industrial buildings or football grounds.
